Abstract: The ability of an economy to export high-quality products is a function of its key fundamentals, such as capital, technologies and its institutions. This chapter examines the relationship between export quality, FDI activities and level of service imports across different countries. The study develops a panel framework to empirically examine the dynamic pattern of export upgrading and factors directly affecting countries’ export performance. We find that services importing, FDI activities and level of per capita income positively affect export upgrading.
