Abstract

This study considers a comprehensive set of potential determinants of export marketing performance and the unit of analysis is the individual product-market export venture. Data were gathered via a mail survey of firms exporting from Queensland, Australia. The firms comprising the sample came from a wide cross section of industries including agriculture, mining, light industries, metal-working, electronics, chemical and the services industries. The results support the contention that export marketing strategy, firm-specific characteristics and market characteristics were the significant determinants of export marketing performance.
