The Impact of Trade Liberalisation on Manufacturing Sector Performance in Developing Countries: A Survey of the Literature

Kankesu Jayanthakumaran

Economics Working Papers from School of Economics, University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia

Abstract: Empirical studies that have examined the relationship between trade reforms and manufacturing performance have tended to use productivity growth, export growth and changes in price-cost margins as yardsticks of performance measures. We have examined the available literature for the purpose of drawing some conclusions and have obtained mixed results.
