Does Aid-for-Trade from the North Promote South-South Trade?

Applied Economics Letters, 21(17): 1230-1233

Our empirical estimations indicate that aid-for-trade granted by OECD donors strengthens the trade relations of recipient countries with other developing countries. By focusing on South-South trade we mitigate endogeneity concerns that have plagued analyses of trade between recipients and donors of aid-for-trade.
