In this paper, we investigate the dynamic nature of trading using Japanese firm-level data. Specifically, we examine the state dependence and cross effects in exporting and importing. Our findings are as follows. First, we found significant state dependence and cross effects in exporting and importing. Second, those diminish over time. Third, the state dependence and the cross effects are found to be market-specific. Furthermore, such market specificity is more significant in small- and medium-sized enterprises. Last, the past export/import intensity matters in the current trade status.
