Which immigrants stimulate exports in their host country? (en homenaje a José Vicente Blanes)
AbstractWe use province migration-trade panel data to examine the importance of geographic proximity in the effectiveness of ethnic networks on bilateral trade. Empirical findings from the gravity model show that the migration-trade link is clearly in-province: exports from a province to a country do not receive any stimuli from immigrants from this country living outside of the province, once we control for country-province time-invariant fixed effects.
