Abstract:

This article presents new evidence on the impact of Nonreciprocal Preferential Trade Policies (NRPTPs) granted by developed countries to exports from developing countries over the period 1995 to 2003. The analysis has been carried out by using three levels of data aggregation. It accounts for unobservable heterogeneity, endogeneity of the preferential treatment and potential selection bias. We find a positive and significant impact of NRPTPs when considering total exports and total agricultural exports. However, at 2-digit agricultural level the results are heterogeneous.
