Abstract

The article studies and assesses the impact of transport road infrastructure development in 2012–2016 on the dynamics and spatial distribution of regional export in Russia (including the level of exports flowing from the regions through border inspection posts). According to empirical estimation of panel data there is a positive association between several measures of road infrastructure enhancement and regional exports on multiple levels. The Spatial Durbin Model assessment indicates that while proving the influence a high-quality infrastructure may have on regional international trade, one should take into account spatial effects between the objects.
