  • Testing for the Bidirectional Relationship Between FDI in Services and
           Trade in Services: Evidence from Emerging Economies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: P. Jithin, M. Suresh Babu
      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      We examine the two-way links between foreign direct investments (FDI) in services and trade in services for 26 emerging economies from 2003 to 2015 using sectoral and sectoral disaggregated FDI data. Within a multivariate framework, we use panel unit root tests, recently developed heterogeneous panel cointegration and panel vector error correction model (VECM). Our results confirmed the cointegrating relationship between trade in services, FDI in services, financial services FDI and nonfinancial services FDI. We find the existence of long-run unidirectional causality from trade in services to FDI in services. However, the disaggregated analysis shows a bidirectional link between nonfinancial services FDI and trade in services in the short run. Still, there is no causality between financial services FDI and trade in services both in the short run and long run. The result also shows the evidence of unidirectional causality running from trade in services to nonfinancial services FDI in the long run. It implies that sectoral decomposition matters in the FDI–trade nexus in emerging economies.JEL Codes: G20, F14, G20, F23

  • Indian SMEs in Global Value Chains: Status, Issues and Way Forward

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sonia Mukherjee, Arpita Mukherjee
      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) account for bulk of the enterprises in most countries and play a crucial role in global value chains (GVCs). In India, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) constitute around 30% of the gross domestic product (GDP), accounts for 50% of exports and a major share in employment. Under the Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, the Central government intends to enhance the share of MSMEs in exports to 60% in the next 5 years. The government also plans to increase the contribution of the MSMEs to 40% of the GDP. In this context, this article examines how effective the government policies have been in the past 10 years to help Indian MSMEs integrate in the GVCs. It first presents an overview of the MSMEs in India, focusing on their exports and global market integration. It then examines the schemes and policies of the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, and provides an empirical estimation (2000–2001 to 2020–2021) of the impact of government schemes/programmes on MSMEs integration in the GVCs. Based on key informant interviews, it identified the core issues faced by the MSMEs and makes recommendation on how to address them, so that, the targets set by the government for enhancing the contribution of the sector to GDP and exports can be achieved.JEL Codes: F10, G28, O10, O20, O57

  • Revisiting the Gravity Model of Migration

      Authors: Mohammad Azeem Khan, Zeenat Fatima, Sumbul Fatima
      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      The recent global migration pattern indicates the importance of the movement of people from developing countries to developed countries in search of better economic opportunities. The G20 report of ‘International Migration and Displacement Trends’ mentions India at the top of the list of highly educated emigrants in G20 countries. The current study addresses the endogeneity problem in the migration determinants and attempts to highlight the major regional and economic determinants of migration flow from India to major OECD countries using the Gravity model of migration. We apply the Prais–Winsten regression method to address the cross-sectional correlation, while we apply instrumental variable regression and Hausman–Taylor regression estimation techniques to deal with the endogeneity issue. The findings reveal that the population of India, distance, common official language and per capita income differential are the major determinants of migration from India. In the backdrop of our findings, in terms of per capita income differential, there is a need for an upward revision in the pay scale of the white-collar workers in the organised sector.JEL Codes: C23, F22, J11, J60

      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      The main objective of this article is to showcase the major activities/processes each exporter/importer needs to go through in any land port, seaport or airport. The article looks into the processes, time taken during various processes, the perceptions of stakeholders about the extent of challenges they face during these processes and the logistics costs. Finally, the article provides a comparison across exporting ports in terms of their efficiency in clearing cargo. However, we have also attempted to measure of the efficiency of the port in terms of cargo offloading.JEL Codes: P45, R41, R48, Q37

  • Impact of FDI and Its Absorption Capacity on the National Innovation
           Ecosystems: Evidence from the Largest FDI Recipient Countries of the World
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Naveed Ul Haq
      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      Foreign direct investment (FDI) improves economic growth by stimulating native investment, facilitating technology transfers in the recipient country and increasing human capital development, thus playing a vital role in economic development. On the other hand, innovation is also considered one of the major drivers for the economic growth of a country. This study empirically investigates the impact of FDI and its absorption capacity on the national innovation system of the world’s top five largest FDI recipient countries for the period of 1990–2016. Using two-stage analysis (DEA and Tobit regression), we found that research and development expenditures, researchers in the host country and the number of patents, trademark and industrial design applications are positive drivers of the national innovation systems. Moreover, the FDI inflows positively impact the innovation efficiency in the host countries. However, the strength of this relationship depends on the availability of the absorption capacity of FDI in the host country. The result shows that the global financial crisis and inflation negatively impact the FDI inflows and innovation efficiency in the sample countries. It concludes that FDI inflows and the country’s strength of domestic absorption capacity are essential drivers for developing national innovation ecosystems.JEL Codes: F1, F4, G10, M21

  • Non-linear Effect of Real Exchange Rate Variability with Macroeconomic
           Variable on Non-Petroleum Commodities of India– US Trade

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mohini Gupta, Sakshi Varshney
      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article aims to explore the asymmetric influence of real exchange rate volatility on India–US trade commodity-wise. In this study, the assumption of symmetric relation is neglected and assessed on the asymmetric effect of real exchange rate volatility on 90 commodities distributed under 6 industries. This study verifies short-run and long-run asymmetry effects, the short-run effect in 21 Indian exporting commodities and 19 Indian importing commodities. However, the short-run effect lasting onto the long run in 16 exporting commodities and 27 importing commodities strongly supports the J-curve. Also, non-linear causality is witnessed in this study running from real exchange rate variability to export trade and import trade. The empirical analyses explain that commodities will benefit the export or import growth with the depreciation of exchange rate or discouraging with the appreciation of exchange rate. The findings of the study provide a view for policy making.JEL Codes: C22, F1, F14, F31, O19

  • Determinants and Potential of Seafood Trade: Evidence from a Transitional
           Economy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Chung Van Dong, Hoan Quang Truong
      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      This study, by employing an augmented gravity model under the Poisson pseudo-maximum-likelihood (PPML) estimation, aims to scrutinise the determinants and potential of seafood exports from Vietnam—a transitional and emerging economy to the global market over the period of 2000–2018 at both aggregate and sectoral levels. With remarkable growth over the years, Vietnam has become the largest seafood exporter in Southeast Asia. The country’s seafood exports have been diversified in terms of export structure and export markets. The estimation results show that the size of economies and market development from importers are the main factors that are driving Vietnam’s total seafood exports. At the sectoral level, the magnitude of the effects of income per capita significantly differs among the subsectors of seafood. We find that the impacts of factors such as region, access to the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the free trade agreement (FTA) establishment on Vietnam’s seafood exports are heterogeneous. We found that there is still room for the expansion of Vietnam’s seafood exports to some market destinations. This article suggests a dynamic strategy to increase Vietnam’s seafood exports in the coming years.JEL Codes: F1, F14, Q1

           the Indian Garment Clusters

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Saon Ray, Smita Miglani
      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      In this article, we examine the Indian garment industry to examine the effect of clusters on the sales of this industry. The data has been collected through a primary survey in five garments clusters in India. The variable that is significant in explaining sales in most equations is technology proxied by imported machinery. It has been argued that inter-firm linkages and linkages between firms, service providers and institutions are crucial for competitiveness and this is best achieved through a cluster. Studies on clusters have shown that some clusters have been able to deepen their inter-firm division of labour, raise their competitiveness and break into international markets. The development of the cluster in India has followed the ‘top-down’ approach and the natural process through which linkages are developed are yet to occur in most clusters.JEL Codes: F14, L67, L23

  • Do International Fragmentation of Production and Global Value Chains
           Participation Affect the Long-run Economic Growth'

      Authors: Camila do Carmo Hermida, Anderson Moreira Aristides dos Santos, Mauricio Vaz Lobo Bittencourt
      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article aims to investigate whether the international fragmentation of production and the global value chains (hereafter GVCs) participation affects the economic growth for a set of 40 advanced and emerging economies. It considers four aspects related to the type of participation and position in GVCs captured by different value-added measures: (a) vertical specialisation index; (b) GVC participation index; (c) GVC position index in low-tech sectors; and (d) GVC position index in high-tech sectors. A panel autoregressive distributed lag (PARDL) model is pioneeringly employed to capture the long-term relationship between economic growth and our four measures for annual value-added data from 1995 to 2011, provided by the World Input–Output Tables (WIOT). The main long-run results indicate that (a) higher levels of international fragmentation of production and GVCs’ participation ensure higher GDP per capita growth rates; (b) the fragmentation and GVCs’ participation are more important to GDP growth than the gross exports as a percentage of GDP; (c) GVCs’ participation index, which considers both the ‘forward’ and ‘backward’ participation, is less important than the vertical specialisation, measured by the foreign intermediate imports; and (d the countries engaged in upstream positions in low-technology GVCs were positively and significantly benefitted in terms of growth.JEL Codes: F14, F43

      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      The economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic invokes questions about a possible prolonged economic deceleration. In this article, we study the impact of output growth accelerations and decelerations, as per the definition of Arbache and Page (2007, More growth or fewer collapses' A new look at long run growth in Sub-Saharan Africa [Working Paper 4384]) and Conceicao and Kim (2010, The asymmetric impact of growth fluctuation on human development: Evidence from correlates of growth decelerations and accelerations. Mimeo), on sector-level foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows and outflows for a group of 34 OECD countries in the period 1995–2019. The results show that Finance services FDI and transport services FDI inflows are countercyclical, while manufacturing FDI outflows are procyclical. Transport services FDI outflows are countercyclical, and the most significant determinant of both FDI inflows and outflows is the control of corruption, respectively, in the host and home countries.JEL Codes: F21, O16, O19

  • Isolating China: Deglobalisation and its Impact on Global Value Chains

      Authors: Badri Narayanan Gopalakrishnan, Sumathi Lalapet Chakravarthy, Tavishi Tewary, Vranda Jain
      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      As global value chains (GVCs) account for 80% of global trade, the revival of protectionism, amidst the looming trade tensions between United States and other trading partners, particularly China will dampen the international input–output relations. By using a multi-regional and multi-sectoral dynamic computable general equilibrium model, this study analyses China driven GVCs. The study explores the impact of tariff change on China and its major trading partners on economic variables like consumption, investment, government expenditure, exports and imports and sectors like electronic goods, coal, crude oil and machine equipment for the five-year period, that is, 2021–2025. GTAP 10 database has been used. The findings of the study suggest that although China’s dominance may diminish, yet it would continue to be one of the prominent players in GVC. Further, based on the results, the global economy can look forward to fragmented and locally oriented supply chains. At the sectoral level, the shorter supply chains would lead a further disjoint global trade system with a wider range of suppliers for similar products and hence increased regionalisation of production.JEL Codes: F10, F17, F60, F16, D58

      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      Global value chains (GVCs) are the modus operandi of contemporary international trade and production. However, the operational underpinnings of what facilitates or hinders participation of firms in their respective sectoral GVCs are surprisingly understudied. This article attempts to discover the potential factors—ranging from regulatory, institutional, technological, trade-related and financial to sectoral, and input-related elements—affecting GVC participation of automotive firms in India. A firm-level field survey was undertaken to better understand firms’ perceptions regarding these factors. The findings were analysed using principal component analysis (PCA) and partial least squares structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM), which revealed that certain policies such as state government initiatives and the Competition Act, as well as trade facilitation measures like standardisation of procedural requirements and trade agreements were the most significant factors aiding firms’ participation in automotive GVCs, while institutional, technological and input-related aspects were deterrents to such participation. Our findings have important implications for policymaking in the country for encouraging greater GVC participation of firms, especially small and medium enterprises.JEL Codes: F14, F6

  • Global Value Chains in India and Their Impact on Gender Wage Disparity

      Authors: Kaveri Deb
      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      Trade across countries in the world has assumed a new dimension with the emergence of global value chains (GVCs). GVCs are associated with trade in intermediate parts and components being processed and assembled in multiple countries. The current article analyses the impact of India’s participation in GVCs on the wage gap between male and female workers. Dearth of studies exploring this issue in the Indian context is a motivation for the current research. India’s participation in GVCs is measured by two indicators—domestic value added in intermediate goods as a share of gross exports (DVAXINT) and foreign value-added share of gross exports (FVAX). Both pooled and panel regression analyses based on secondary sources of data suggest that none of the indicators of GVCs have been helpful in improving the relative wages of female workers in India.JEL Codes: C33, F14, F16, F23

      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      In recent years, trade in intermediate goods has increased manifold with the emergence of global value chains (GVCs). China has emerged as one of the leading countries in the whole GVC network; many countries, including the USA, are heavily dependent on China for the intermediates in the manufacturing sector. The outbreak of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns in many countries, including China, have disrupted the supply in GVCs. This situation has led to the search for alternative markets for intermediates for the sustainable-production process. This study looks at how India can be an alternative avenue for the USA in place of China in the GVC network. It investigates the extent of participation of the countries under study in the GVCs and the gains resulting from it. The main focus of the research is to determine the emerging opportunities for India in GVCs, through correlating the USA industries which are vulnerable to disruption in GVCs as caused by China to those industries of India in which India enjoys a comparative advantage. The analysis reveals that in the ‘textiles, wearing apparel, leather and related products’ and ‘chemicals and non-metallic mineral products’ industries, India could be a replacement of China for the USA.JEL Codes: F10, F13, F15

      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      Volatility in output growth remains a genuine concern around the globe because of its detrimental effects on growth, poverty and welfare. In the realm of output volatility, the role of FDI and its consistency is particularly important and worth considering. This article examines the role of FDI inflows and specifically the instability in it on output growth volatility using a panel dataset of 141 world economies for the period 1971–2017. The study employs a variety of estimation techniques like pooled ordinary least squares (POLS), LS fixed effects (FE), LS random effects (RE), two stage least squares (2SLS) and generalised methods of moments (GMM). Findings of the study suggest that FDI acts as the volatility reducing factor, whereas uncertainty in it increases output volatility. On the policy front, this study recommends policies that not only encourage FDI inflows but also ensure the inflows to be more consistent and stable. Our results are robust corresponding to various above-mentioned estimation techniques and sensitivity analysis.JEL Codes: C23, E32, F21

      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Ahead of Print.
      After a run of adverse investor-state dispute settlements, India has recently denounced all its erstwhile investment treaties. New investment treaties need to be negotiated on the basis of a new Model Treaty that privilege state rights over investor rights. We study the impact of bilateral investment treaties on foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows into India before the denunciation with the intent of inferring the consequences of changing the system. Our work captures the effects of international investment agreements on FDI inflows specifically into India. We construct an empirical model drawing on the Gravity Model, and estimate parameters using generalised method of moments. The results show that while the individual signing of bilateral investment treaties does not influence the inflow of FDI, the effect of the cumulative bilateral investment treaties signed is statistically very significant—suggesting that the spill over effect of signing a series of bilateral investment treaties are important, signalling a regime of overall protection to investors. The importance of institutional variables in influencing FDI tells us that overall participation in a system governed by international investor agreements influenced the inflow of FDI positively and therefore recent policy changes should be viewed with caution.JEL Codes: F21, F23, F550, F63, K33, O19, C22, C29

  • The Dynamics of Export Diversification, Economic Complexity and Economic
           Growth Cycles: Global Evidence

      Authors: Nguyen Phuc Canh, Su Dinh Thanh

      Abstract: Foreign Trade Review, Volume 57, Issue 3, Page 234-260, August 2022.
      This article investigates the dynamics of export diversification, economic complexity and economic growth cycles. By applying several econometric techniques for estimating a panel data set of 70 economies over the period from 1996 to 2014, the results have been threefold. First, there is Granger bi-directional causality between economic complexity and export diversification, while unidirectional Granger causality exists from economic complexity to economic growth cycles. Second, the result attained from the three-stage least squares estimate demonstrates that economic complexity and export diversification significantly impact each other. Notably, the effect of economic complexity is found to be negative on economic growth cycles, implying that the dynamics of economic complexity and export diversification generate a reduction in economic fluctuations. Third, by splitting the sample into two subsamples (i.e., 32 high-income economies and 38 low- and middle-income economies) and two sub-periods (i.e., 1994–2007 and 2008–2014), the results show that the positive dynamics between economic complexity and export diversification are consistent with income levels and time periods. However, the negative impact of economic complexity on economic growth cycles is statistically significant only for the group of high-income economies and during the 1996–2007 period. These findings are checked by several estimators and different proxies of export diversification, economic growth cycles and economic complexity.JEL: F13, F14, O19, E32
