Export performance of transition countries
MetadataShow full item record
This study reports the results from the estimation of an export determination model for former Soviet Union and Eastern European transition countries, for 2005-2011. We present model results from a sample of 28 transition countries and results after excluding five resource rich countries from our sample. We found that closer proximity to Europe had a positive impact on exports from countries and that Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) had larger impacts on exports of resource rich countries. We also concluded that internal trade-related infrastructure of port quality and technological advancement play important roles in exports of transition economies.
