We examine the linkages between import policy and export performance, extending classic macroeconomic trade e ffects to more recent concepts from the modern literature on gravity models. We also examine these e ffects empirically with a panel of global and bilateral trade spanning 15 years. Our emphasis on the role of import policy (i.e. tari ffs) of exporters as an explanation of trade volumes contrasts with the recent emphasis on importer policy in the gravity literature. It also reinforces the growing body of evidence on the importance of economic environmental (policy and infrastructure) conditions in explaining relative export performance.
