Abstract

This research project aims to further shed light on the influences of FDI on firm-level export outcomes in Thailand. The goals of this paper are to identify the factors, particularly those related to FDI, that determine firms' export orientation, and to make policy recommendations with regard to facilitating MNCs export spillovers. The findings from this project indicate that firms' decisions to export are heavily influenced by governmental aid and the presence of foreign direct investors. Secondary findings from this project further propose that the intensity of firms' exports is increasing in the percentage of foreign ownership in the (host country's) firms.
