Abstract

This article analyses the role of economic diplomacy on the export market entry decisions of Dutch firms. We show that the presence of government support offices in middle-income countries and government trade missions stimulate Dutch firms to enter export markets in these countries. These conclusions follow from using detailed international trade data combined with firm and export market characteristics.
