Regional integration and productivity growth: The case of the EU

Johansson, Helena LU (2001) In Journal of Economic Integration 16(1). p.1-20
Abstract
Recent research has emphasised the role of trade in productivity growth. The purpose of the present paper is to investigate how regional integration, and the different treatment of member and non-member imports, affects the relation between imports and productivity growth. We focus on the European Union and find intra-union imports to have more of an effect on total factor productivity growth than imports from the outside of the EU, even if only developed nonmember countries are considered.
