Services Inputs and Export Performance of Manufacturing Firms in Transition Economies

  • Berulava George

    ()

The objective of current paper is to explore the impact of services inputs on export performance of manufacturing firms in transition economies. The results of the study provide a new understanding of the consequences of trade liberalization in services sector. In particular, positive impact of services sector efficiency on export performance of manufacturers is revealed. Along with services impact, we find that firm specific characteristics such as introduction of new products, investments in research and development, employment of advanced technologies, and employee skills are key drivers of export performance in manufacturing sector in transition economies. Firm’s size and foreign investments do matter as well. The results of this study provide information for policymakers and stakeholders that will facilitate elaboration of policy interventions aimed at improvement of export performance of manufacturers in transition economies.
