Description
  • Abstract

    Other than that new exporters account for a large part of aggregate export growth, we know little else. We document that aggregate export growth in Chile is driven by only a few new exporters. These exporters are new business entities, operate new plants, and behave much like experienced exporters: they start large and have high survival rates. Moreover, 70% of these "new firms" are owned by existing businesses and are likely the by-product of either domestic spin-offs or foreign direct investment (24%). By focusing on the average new exporter the existing models of new exporter dynamics miss these key features of export growth.
