Abstract: The objective of this paper is the analysis of the role of technology gap in explaining the aggregate intensity of Polish exports over the period 1999–2011 in a panel of all possible Polish trade partners. We construct a basic export model in a gravity framework and further augmented by incorporating various measures of technological gap. We find it to play a substantial role in determining the intensity of Polish trade relations. In general, Poland exports more to countries at the similar level of technological sophistication. We test the robustness of the results and find that the impact of technology gap varies with respect to different groups of partners depending on their technological level.
