    The UK has a new PM, Cabinet and thus a new Secretary of State for International Trade. Will its trade strategy change? UK trade policy is primarily focused on free trade agreements (FTAs), but signing FTAs does not constitute a trade policy and the economic benefits from these agreements are exceedingly small.

    Summary Pre-CITP publication

    Utilizing a comprehensive dataset for Turkish manufacturing firms, the authors analyse differentials in the post-entry effects on productivity. They employ propensity score matching techniques with multiple treatments, together with a differences-in-differences (DiD) methodology. Controlling for firm level mark-ups, they explore whether the post-entry effects on productivity are driven by changes in physical productivity. The results confirm the learning-by-exporting hypothesis, and suggest physical productivity gains, in particular for exports to high income countries as opposed to middle low-income countries, even after controlling for the composition of exports. This suggests that where a firm export does matter for productivity growth.

    View post

    Summary Pre-CITP publication

    Preferential trade agreements increasingly feature a variety of provisions related to economic and social rights , environmental protection, and civil and political rights. This paper estimates the effect of the degree of legalization of PTAs in these non-trade provisions on the flow of bilateral greenfield FDI. The authors explore this relation in a structural gravity setting and find that all three types of non-trade provisions affect the flow of FDI negatively. This effect is driven by investments directed to middle- and low-income countries.
