Research results on firm-level export activity published
 
On 21 January at a function in Pretoria, Prof Marianne Matthee and Ms Carli Bezuidenhout from the TRADE research entity presented the first round of results from a far-reaching study in which they are involved, together with UNU-Wider, the National Treasury and SARS.
 
With their research partners from the University of Stellenbosch, Prof Neil Rankin and Ms Tasha Naughtin, Prof Matthee and Ms Bezuidenhout used administrative data to examine the extent of export activity and productivity at firm level in South Africa. Their initial findings showed that South Africa's exports are driven predominantly by large, multi-country and multi-product companies, with small businesses playing a relatively minor role.
