This staff research paper investigates the relationship between innovation and exporting activities of small and medium businesses.

Using Australian microdata in a simultaneous equations framework, this paper shows that firm innovation and export behaviour are mutually driven processes. The paper also presents evidence of the self-selection of exporting firms into innovative activity, but not the other way around.
