Abstract
This paper investigates whether immigration promotes bilateral trade within the European Union between 2008 and 2015. Results from an augmented gravity model indicate a positive linkage between bilateral migration and trade, results which are in line with prior findings in the field research. Notably, the pro-trade effect is slightly larger for the import sector and immigrants seem to facilitate trade in services at a larger extent than for trade in goods.
