Exports, Imports and Productivity Growth: Results from Establishment Data

Sjöholm, Fredrik LU (1999) In World Development 27(4). p.705-715
Abstract
Using detailed micro data form the Indonesian manufacturing sector we examine whether participation in international trade affects establishments' productivity. Establishments participating in exports or imports have relatively high levels of productivity. Furthermore, the results suggest that establishments engaged only in exports have shown comparable high productivity growth. The larger the share of an establishment's output that is exported, the higher its productivity growth. The results concerning the effect of imports on productivity growth are mixed.
