Does foreign investment benefit the exporting activities of Vietnamese firms?

Abstract: Using firm‐level data, this paper examines the effects of foreign investment on the exporting behaviour of domestic firms in the Vietnamese manufacturing and service sectors. Applying the Heckman selection model on panel data and following the Wooldridge approach, we find that investment by foreign firms has a significant positive effect on the decision of domestic firms in the same and upstream sectors to export.

“…Most of these studies confirm the existence of significant export spillovers, showing that the indirect effects of foreign direct investment are positive (Aitken et al, 1997; Greenaway et al, 2004; Sun & Anwar, 2017; Thompson & Zang, 2020). Ha et al (2020) and Kim and Xin (2021) report mixed results, indicating positive vertical and negative horizontal export spillovers in Vietnamese and Chinese manufacturing industries. In contrast, Kneller and Pisu (2007) and Sjöholm (2003) find no significant indirect export effects.…”

“…where FP i;j;t is productivity of firm i in industry j at time t, measured by value added per labor. There are two most common measures way to measure firm productivity including value added per labor (Bisztray et al, 2023;Chen et al, 2021;Junge et al, 2016;Croce et al, 2013) and total factor productivity (TFP) (Ha et al, 2020;Newman et al, 2015). We provide our analysis using both measures as the outcome variable.…”
