    We use Propensity Score Matching in a novel way to classify Brazilian industrialfirms according to their potential to export. Our four-level classification specificallyidentifies non-exporting firms which have a degree of international competitivenesssimilar to firms which export. This conclusion is drawn by comparing variousproductive and technological characteristics of these potential exporters with those ofexporting firms and observing little or no difference between the two groups. The effectsof export stimulating policies may be improved by focusing more closely onthese firms. If the potential exporters from 2000 began to export in 2001, exportvolume would increase 17% and the export base would be augmented by 64%.
