''Pro-trade effects of MENA immigrants in France: does governance matter?''
( 2020, Vol. 40 No.4 )
This paper investigates the role of governance in explaining the effects of immigrants of ten MENA countries on fostering trade in France from 1995 to 2015. Based on a maximum likelihood Tobit and PPML estimators, our results reveal that immigration has a positive and significant effect on trade, with a higher impact for differentiated products. Therefore, trade and migration are complementary. Results also show, on the one hand, that governance strengthens the effects of immigrants on MENA exports to France, especially for reference priced and differentiated goods. On the other hand, it has no impact on MENA imports.
