Abstract

From regional growth theoretical perspectives, exports represent the important factor with different impact in time and space. The export activities depend in a large share on the way in which a state or a region capitalises their endogenous potential, including the accumulated knowledge and existing capacities. Due to the positive impact on the regional competitiveness and specialisation, export is regarded, currently, as an important factor of economic resilience, but also as a pillar for the emergence of territorial inequalities. This paper investigates which export fields and products at regional level have resisted to crisis and the possible policy responses to mitigate the effects. Also, we intend to present a series of quantitative and qualitative comparisons regarding the regional export activity, for the period 2008-2013, when export registered variations from one from one region to another, under the impact of the world economic and financial crisis.
