Firm internationalization and performance: Evidence for designing policies

Giuseppe Giulio Calabrese and Alessandro Manello ()

Journal of Policy Modeling, 2018, vol. 40, issue 6, 1221-1242

Abstract: The debate on the relationship between internationalization and performance is still open and is a hot topic for policymakers, but they ignore the impacts for most of the firms supported. The paper is based on a large database of seven years that considers quantitative-qualitative and control variables. To reduce industry and country heterogeneity we focused on the Italian automotive supply chain. We tested 5 modes of internationalization on firms’ profitability so to support the design of policies. Our results are partially in contrast with literature; therefore we identify specific environments where policies, namely for exporting, could be more effective.
