Export performance, Transnational Corporations and the Manufacturing Sector: A Case Study of India
This paper presents models to outline the factors determining the exporting decision and the actual exports of exporters in the Indian manufacturing industry. Our results indicate that the export propensity of actual exporters is negatively related to size and positively to the import intensity. Second, the results also imply a Heckscher-Ohlin trade pattern with export intensity negatively related to the capital labour ratios of firms. Third, while foreign ownership, per se, has no influence on the export propensity, where there are differences in the functional relationship for domestic and foreign owned firms, the latter seem to be relatively more oriented towards the domestic market. Finally, the decision to undertake exports is dependent on firm and industry specific factors and not on the multinationality per se.
