Exports Diversification: New Evidence Using Customs Data

Topic: F1. Trade

completed Project

In collaboration with the World Bank, this research project aims at providing a micro-perspective on export growth and diversification patterns in MENA. It investigates the characteristics of exporters in the MENA region in a systematic manner focusing on understanding if increased exports are the result of new firms and expansion of existing firms, and/or introduction of new products and new destinations, or expansion of exports in existing products and destinations. The project uses a unique multi-country exporter-level database for eight countries, namely: Egypt, Iran, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia and Yemen.
