This paper investigates the effect of firms’ working capital management, measured by the cash conversion cycle (CCC) on exports, on both the intensive and extensive margins. By using Heckman’s two-stage model for the treatment of sample selection bias, we find that the longer the CCC, the lower firms’ likelihood of exporting and the lower the volum...

This policy brief summarizes the findings from a study on the determinants of greenfield investment in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA). The results point out that institutional deficiencies deter foreign direct investment in the region and in particular, for the main oil producers within this region. Improvements in the areas of demo...

According to our study, improving institutional quality is more likely to foster FDI in MENA oil producers than in MENA no oil producers while the presence of natural resources could be expected to undermine the positive impact of institutions' quality could have on FDI. This may be explained by the fact that the oil production of such MENA countri...
