Abstract: This paper deals with the international trade interrelations between Spain and its closest neighbours to the South and West: Portugal and Morocco. It analyses the importance of optical products in the trade balance with those countries. To do so, a Social Accounting Matrix for Spain is used as a benchmark economic model, where the optical sector has been disaggregated and international coefficients are considered in order to include the effect of Portugal and Morocco in the Spanish economic system. Results show that, although Portugal plays a considerably important role, there are still growth opportunities toward the relations with Morocco. Este trabajo trata sobre las relaciones internacionales entre España y sus vecinos más cercanos al sur y oeste: Portugal y Marruecos, analizando la importancia de los productos ópticos en la balanza con dichos países. Para ello, se hace uso de la Matriz de Contabilidad Social para España como modelo económico de referencia, donde el sector óptico aparece desagregado, además se consideran coeficientes internacionales con la finalidad de incluir el efecto de Portugal y Marruecos en el sistema económico español. Los resultados muestran que, a pesar de que Portugal ocupa una posición considerablemente importante, aún existen amplias oportunidades de crecimiento en las relaciones hacia Marruecos.
