This paper helps to understand how firms learn from their peers when enter new markets. The results point the existence of information spillovers steaming from close companies: in the same region, sector or export markets'. In fact, exporters learn from very close firms; sectoral peers in their region. There seem to be also a competition effect that hinder spillovers; this comes from companies that without providing new information share the forieng demand. Knowledge externalities seem to be stronger in incoming companies what increase the relevance of these effects for export extensive margin growth.
