Market Access, Export Performance And Survival: Evidence From Peruvian Firms

  • Marco Fugazza
  • Alain McLaren

This paper explores the effect of market access on firms’ export performance and their survival on foreign markets. The data used cover all Peruvian exporting firms between 2002 and 2008, a period during which Peru was active in joining the global economy. This is done using two indices: one that summarizes the tariffs faced by exports; the other that measures the preferential margin at the bilateral level. Results show that more than market access conditions per se, it is market access conditions relative to those faced by competitors that significantly influence export performance and survival. About a fifth of the increase of exports directed to MERCOSUR countries is due to improvement in preference margins.
