Ukrainian Firm-Level Export Dynamics: Structural Analysis
AbstractThe paper studies the dynamics of exporting activity at the extensive and intensive margins and its impact on the firm-level total factor productivity growth for Ukraine manufacturing and service sectors in 2000-2005. The estimation is performed for different types of export markets distinguishing between developed and developing countries; and for different types of export products, distinguishing between capital versus labour intensive products and raw materials. The main finding of the paper suggests that significant share of productivity gains occur in the long term, when firms adjust to the international market conditions and become larger exporters. Performing the analysis for different types of export markets and export products confirms that exporting to the more technologically advanced countries results in higher productivity gains due to the access to new superior technologies, better managerial practices, etc. Also in some cases productivity gains are higher in the case when capital intensive products are exported to the economically advanced markets, such as European Union.
