Export performance and transformational performance are some of indicators for measuring outputs through which macroeconomic competitiveness is reported. The first one shows the productivity of the export and the second one value added in foreign trade. This paper deals with the relationship of them in three selected countries – Czech Republic, Poland and Austria during the period 1995-2010. These countries belong to the members of Visegrad Group plus and are examined for two reasons: the first is geographic proximity and the second is the heterogeneous size, which plays important role. While the Czech Republic and Austria belongs to the small economies whose openness should be large (and research results should therefore be similar), Poland is ranked to the economies of medium size with an expected lower level of openness. It is considered that increasing productivity of foreign trade tend to increasing its value added and thus contribute to improvement of macroeconomic competitiveness. The observations were being proven by using the correlation and regression analysis. The positive relationship between export and transformational performance was found in all analyzed countries.ls.
