We use plant-level panel data for the Taiwanese electrical machinery and electronics industry to examine productivity differentials between exporters and non-exporters. Consistent with other recent literature, we find that exporters are larger, pay higher wages, undertake more investment expenditures in machinery, equipment, and new technology, and are substantially more productive than non-exporters.
