Foreign Plants and Industry Productivity: Evidence from Chile
AbstractThis paper presents new evidence on foreign plants and their effects on a host industry. I test the predictions of a Melitz-type model using a panel of domestic and foreign plants in the Chilean manufacturing sector. Foreign ownership is a strong predictor of plant productivity and size advantages. Moreover, productivity gains for a domestic incumbent are positively associated with foreign plants' presence in the same industry and region. I also find a positive correlation between foreign entry and exit of less productive domestic plants, but inconclusive evidence on the effects on productivity of new domestic plants.
