Many countries with developing or transitional economies appear not to be benefiting from the expansion in international trade associated with globalization. This study offers possible explanations for the slow export supply response. Obstacles to increasing exports from countries in sub-Saharan Africa and the former Soviet Union are explored. Findings emphasize the need to invest in labor productivity and improved infrastructure, the importance of management structures, and the role of global buyers and distribution networks. Morrissey is affiliated with the University of Nottingham. Filatotchev is affiliated with the University of London. This group of studies first appeared in a special issue of , 37/2, December 2000.
