Abstract

The recent theoretical developments suggest explicitly the role of firms in international trade. The models of heterogeneous firms argue that the observed differences between exporters and non-exporters may be due to self-selection of the most productive firms to the export market and due the process of learning-by-export. Yet, Brazil's export performance is related to the permanence in the export market and this permanence is related with the entrance value. In Brazil, some policies have been practiced in order to boost the international presence of exporting firms. Export Promotion Programs raise the export performance of firms through financing and tax incentives. However, little effort has been invested to verify whether such programs promote exports effectively assist in the maintenance of newcomers on the international market firms, as well as its export performance. The purpose of this study is to investigate the extent to which access to government support by exporting firms increase their export performance and promote their permanence in the export market. An econometrical analysis will be conducted by estimating a survival function, a multinomial logit and a panel data tobit. To this end, it will be used the information of the Brazilian exporting firms derived from IPEA, IBGE, RAIS and Secex over 2000-2007.
