Export behaviour and innovation: a challenge to be met by cooperatives
This study examines cooperatives' export behaviour. The aim is to determine the direct effect of cooperatives' size, innovation and experience on export intensity and whether there are any indirect effects. We use Path analysis to evaluate causal relationships. We find that innovation is a key factor to improve export intensity, whereas size displays an indirect effect only, and experience exhibits a negative relationship.
