|DP 2006-18||Determinants of Export Performance in the Philippine Manufacturing Sector|
|Duenas-Caparas, Maria Teresa S.|
The paper determines the factors affecting the export performance of firms in three main manufacturing sectors in the Philippines. Specifically, firm-level characteristics like firm size, firm age, and foreign affiliation are identified and statistically tested to
determine if it affects a firmís capability to export. The study uses a novel econometric model which specifically addresses fractional response behavior and estimates the model using a modified quasi-maximum likelihood procedure. Among the firm-level characteristics tested, foreign affiliation has the most prominent influence on a firmís propensity to export.
