Impact Evaluation of Targeted Trade Interventions

This project plans to contribute to the impact assessment literature by applying quasi-experimental methods to the evaluation of government programmes to promote exports.

Significant resources are devoted to export-processing zones, exporter assistance programmes, and projects aimed at modernising border management and customs procedures. The paucity of rigorous evaluations of these interventions, however, has made it hard to assess their desirability and to improve their design.   


This project applies quasi experimental methods to evaluate export promotion programmes and will also include a case study on examining the trade effects of the harmonisation of maximum residue levels (MRLs) in the EU.
