Informations and abstract

Keywords: Export Promotion; Impact Evaluation; SMEs.

The paper aims at evaluating the impact of export promotion policies at the regional level in Italy. We estimate a difference-in-differences model with firm-level fixed-effects to analyze the effect of matching grants for participation in international trade fairs in Lombardy, the most important Italian region in economic terms. Results show that the vouchers are able to improve firms' export performance by affecting the intensive margin of small-sized and more internationalized firms.
