Resumo:
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.
