The Impact of Trade Facilitation on Export Performance in Six ASEAN Countries Period 2005- 2016
AbstractTrade Facilitation (TF) is a form of simplifying the process of international trade activities. The purpose of this study was to investigate how TF impacts on export performance in six ASEAN countries. Port efficiency, burden customs procedure and fixed- broadband are used to construct indicators for measuring TF. This study used 72 samples with a saturated sampling method. Data collection techniques used are non-participants and analysis technique used is panel data regression. The show estimate that TF reform improves export performance in six ASEAN countries. It means an increasing efficiency of TF can improve export performance. Partially, port efficiency and fixed broadband have a significant positive effect on export performance. This means, port efficiency as measured by the quality of infrastructure and a large number of people used fixed broadband subscription can improve export performance. Then for the burden customs procedure variable shows a significant negative effect on export performance. This happened because of the emergence of complicated exporters' views on online export procedures, due to the lack of socialization by the government. The availability of a good TF is the initial capital to dominate the international market and lead to an increase in exports.
