Publication Year : 2021

Countries across the globe invest in export promotion, targeting specific products and destinations for support. This is because exports are considered a platform for productivity, and GDP growth, and because what and where you export matters. In principle, then, interventions to support exporting, and incentivize the exports of certain products, and to specific destinations could be warranted. Yet, the impact of these interventions is still highly debated among economists, with evaluations showing ambiguous and context-specific results. Despite this ambiguity, policymakers across the world do spend substantial public funds to embark in sector-specific export promotion.
