International business visits and the technology frontier

Steve Dowrick and Max Tani

Economics Letters, 2011, vol. 110, issue 3, 209-212

Abstract: We study the effect of international business trips on the productivity of twelve Australian industries during 1991/2-2005/6.We find strong positive effects, particularly for departing, rather than incoming, international visits. This result supports viewing business visits as investments rather than expenditures.
