The analysis of firms’ involvement in internationalisation and determinants of its intensity – an analysis for developing and post-transition economies

Abstract:

The study presents the empirical analysis of firms’ involvement in different
forms of internationalisation: export, indirect export, import, indirect import and finally
simultaneous exporting and importing. The analysis is based on firm-level data from
the World Bank Enterprise Survey (March 2017 release). The empirical part is divided
into two stages. Firstly account is taken of firms’ heterogeneity and then a Melitz type
analysis of the firms’ likeliness of being involved in international activity is performed.
Secondly the sample of firms is limited to only those involved in the internationalisation
process and then a regression is carried out with the export/import intensity being
the dependent variable. The results indicate that determinants of the foreign markets
are different from those connected with trade intensity with the exception of the
foreign ownership which is the only one associated in the same way with involvement
in internationalisation and with its intensity .
