The paper determines the factors affecting the export performance of firms in three main manufacturing sectors in the Philippines. Specifically, firm-level characteristics like firm size, firm age, and foreign affiliation are identified and statistically tested to determine if they affect a firm's capability to export. The study uses a novel econometric model that specifically addresses fractional response behavior and estimates the model using a modified quasi-maximum likelihood procedure.
