Abstract

In this paper we analyze the determinants of the export performance firms. The methodology used is reminiscent of that of previous studies. The main novelty is the use of information provided by a specific field work done to effect. The analysis shows that export propensity is growing the more extensive in time is the export experience, and is larger when the company has benefited from state support internationalization. Foreign direct investment by companies not replace export intensity but seems to reinforce it at least to a size threshold of 250 employees. Finally, technology companies classifiable as high or medium-high by OECD standards do show a greater propensity to export.
