This chapter investigates the determinants of cross-country variation in both the levels and growth of exports. There are several main findings. First, geography creates substantial cross-country variation in the ease of access to foreign markets, and this is an important determinant of countries' export performance. Second, export performance also depends on internal geography, which is measured by the proportion of the population close to the coast or navigable rivers. Finally, export performance also depends on many other domestic supply-side factors. A commentary is included at the end of the chapter.

Keywords:   cross-country variations, export growth, geography, foreign market access
