Abstract
There exists a glaring gap in the literature studying the role of subnational factors in the export performance of enterprises. A preliminary analysis of the spatial determinants of firms’ export activities by Indian states has been undertaken in this study. The size of technological knowledge stock, port facilities and credit availability in a state are observed to be favouring higher export intensity of local firms. All these call for state’s policy attention to improve regional knowledge base, strengthening of port facilities or ensuring better transportation networks to ports and improved credit availability if local firms were to face the least hurdles in their efforts to internationalize.
Fiscal incentives continue to promote firms’ export activities. In addition, firms own characteristics considerably determine their export behaviour.

Export Competititveness

...international competitiveness. In developing countries high economic growth rate and increases in productivity depend not on innovation but on importing foreign plants and equipment and on borrowing foreign technology (Zhang and Zou, 1995). Technological progress is very critical in enhancing the manufacturing capacity of both the export and non-export sectors of the economy in order to achieve global competitiveness. The non-export sector as an import competing sector should be technologically positioned to compete with competitively priced imports, while the export sector which is biased towards primary commodities at the expense high-value and high technology intensity manufactures should diversify away from primary commodity dependency. While Zimbabwe registered a 62.5% growth in exports, only 7.5% is generated from manufactures, a cumulative 91.5% of exports originated from exporting primary commodities as follows minerals 64.5%, tobacco 17.5%, agriculture 8.4%, horticulture 0.7% and hunting safari 0.4%, (RBZ, 2010). Zimbabwe’s long-term export strategy should therefore focus on transforming from a resource-driven to a technology-driven export sector.

International trade refers to an exchange of products and services across borders. Exchange can be through exporting, importing or countertrade. Exporting is an entry strategy involving the sale of products and services to customers located abroad from the home base or third country. Importing is the buying of products abroad and bringing them to the home market. Countertrade is a business transaction where all or partial payments are made in kind rather than cash. Both finished and intermediate goods, such as raw materials and components are subject to trade.

Export Documentations

...Export Documentation Exporters should seriously consider having the freight forwarder handle the formidable amount of documentation that exporting requires as forwarders are specialists in this process. The following documents are commonly used in exporting; but which of them are necessary in a particular transaction depends on the requirements of the U.S. government and the government of the importing country. • Air freight shipments are handled by air waybills, which can never be made in negotiable form • A bill of lading is a contract between the owner of the goods and the carrier (as with domestic shipments). For vessels, there are two types: a straight bill of lading which is nonnegotiable and a negotiable or shipper's order bill of lading. The latter can be bought, sold, or traded while the goods are in transit. The customer usually needs an original as proof of ownership to take possession of the goods • A commercial invoice is a bill for the goods from the seller to the buyer. These invoices are often used by governments to determine the true value of goods when assessing customs duties. Governments that use the commercial invoice to control imports will often specify its form, content, number of copies, language to be used, and other characteristics. • A consular invoice is a document that is required in some countries. It describes the shipment of goods and shows information such as the consignor, consignee, and value of the shipment. Certified......

Imports and Exports

...Imports and Exports of Corn to Mexico in USD Conclusions: As we can see in the graph, compared to exports, imports are really high, that means that Mexico exports more corn to USA, that’s because Mexico is a big corn’s producer. We can see that at the begining of NAFTA imports increased almost the double between 1995 and 1996 but in 1997 decreased again at the same level of 1994. Then, in the next 8 years imports only had a little increase and in 2006 it had a really huge increase, but maybe due to the crisis in 2008 it got low. The highest point of imports was in 2012. Related to USA exports we can see that they remained during the years and they are almost in the same level. Imports and Exports of Tomatoes to Mexico in USD Conclusions: As we can see in the graph, now USA exports are higher than imports. So we can conclude that Mexico imports lots of tomatoes. During the years that we analized, USA exports increased and only between 2010-2011 they decreased almost 100,000,000. Also, in 2010 it raised rapidly near to 2,000,000,000 and in 2012 in got low again but just a little but in 2013 they tried to return to their high level. USA imports during the years remained but from 2008 to 2010 they had an increased but not so huge.

While 2XU, has already established itself as a global firm, the company needs to continue its expansion into new markets, if it is to achieve is goal of $1 billion of sales within the next 10 to 15 years.

...Duty Exemption and Drawback Background[1] The Duty Exemption and Drawback facility enables exporters and deemed exporters to claim, within 6 months of exports, the duties and taxes paid on raw materials used in the export process. Apart from imported raw materials, businesses are entitled to duty exemption and drawback on taxes paid on utilities and, in some case, on the fuel consumed in the production process. Eligible exporters can claim their drawback by filing their claim with the Duty Exemption and Drawback Office (DEDO), which is an agency under the authority of the National Board of Revenue. The Customs Act, 1969 and the VAT Act 1991 governs the process. While Chapter VI of the Customs Act 1969 provides many of the guidelines, since the promulgation of the VAT Act 1991, drawback can also be claimed on inputs under Section 13, Rules 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 32(a), 33 and 34. Additional SROs that guide the process include SRO 154 (June 9, 2005) and SRO 157 (June 9, 2005). Eligible exporters can enjoy this facility under two broad categories – a duty exemption or a duty drawback. Under the duty drawback system, exporters get refunds of the duties and indirect taxes they have paid on imported inputs. Duty may be refunded in three ways: a) actual drawback, b) national drawback, and c) flat rate drawback. Due to fewer complications and ease of operation, the flat rate system remains the most preferred method of refund. There are also two other ways of making......
