"Immigration and intra-industry trade: the relevante of language, qualification and economic integration"

Horácio C. Faustino, Isabel Proença

Portuguese Journal of Management Studies, 20 (1), 2015

This paper analyses the immigration into Portugal between 2000 and 2005, estimating the effect of the increasing stock of immigrants and some of its characteristics on Portugal’s bilateral intra-industry trade with 37 countries. These comprise all the partner-states of the European Union (EU-27). Using panel data and the pseudo-likelihood logit estimator the results suggest that an increase of the immigrant stock will produce an increment in the intra-industry trade indexes. Our findings also suggest that immigrant qualifications and common language have a positive impact on intra-industry trade.
