A discrete time analysis of export duration in Kenya: 1995 -2014
MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
The scarcity of studies on export duration in Kenya provide the drive of this study. It looks at the determinants of export duration in Kenya in a discrete-time model. Using HS-6 digit export product-level data between Kenya and 203 partners two major results emerge. First, the median export period in Kenya is one year with only 36% of exports surviving past that period. Secondly, the main determinants of export survival in Kenya are: cost of infrastructure (liner shipping connectivity, air transportation network, cost of export and cost of starting a business), macroeconomic stability (GDP, exchange rates and financial inclusivity), improved governance, labour force, regional membership into East African Community, and membership to AGOA.
