Abstract

This paper analyses the determinants of exports in developing countries using panel data of 75 countries for the period 1970-2004. The analysis shows that the GDP and the GDP growth rates positively affect exports. The effect of FDI on exports is positive but insignificant. Thus the success of FDl-led export growth in a few Asian countries cannot be generalised for all developing countries, because structural problems vary across countries. It is also found that the depreciation of real exchange and industrialisation and the development of communication facilities significantly promote exports.
