JEL F23 - Multinational Firms; International Business Angelo Zago
We study the dynamics of the internationalization of small and medium-sized enterprises, in particular of those exporting high quality products. Their performance both in terms of presence and flow of exports in several markets, both traditional and emerging, is analyzed, together with their economic and industrial policy determinants. We analyze, theoretically and empirically, how the presence of multinational firms affects domestic firms’ performance.
