Abstract: Purpose: This paper analyzes the antecedents of export participation by Dubai firms for promoting international trade. Design/Methodology: The study employs a logistic model and using cross sectional data on exporters and non-exporters operating inside and outside free zones. Findings: The results show that, factors such as the annual level of income, higher efficiency (or lower inefficiency) and firms' capacity to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) positively and significantly discriminate exporters from non-exporters in Dubai. Practical implications: These results imply that government policies (in such areas as information and technology) aiming to improve productivity and firm's ability to utilize the spillover effects of multinationals operating in Dubai, need reorientation. Value: The study findings help the firms to sustain exports by concentrating on key export attributes. © EuroJournals Publishing, Inc. 2009.
