Does the transport industry gain from manufacturing internationalization? An empirical investigation on the Italian regions

The present paper deals with the impact of manufacturing internationalisation, in the forms of international trade, cooperation agreements - measured by inward and outward processing trade (IPT and OPT, respectively) - and FDI, on the transport industry employment. Descriptive statistics and econometric analysis are carried out at the ‘regional-industry’ level (20 NUTS2 regions and 8 transport sub-industries) with reference to Italy in the period 1996-2001. Results show that export, FDI and the components of IPT (temporary import and re-export) positively affect the transport employment variation in 1996-2001, while import and the components of OPT (temporary export and re-import) display a negative impact.
