Project Dates

12/14/2007 - 06/01/2008


This project assessed the importance of competition on regional markets in Russia for the productivity performance of Russian firms with different ownership structures. Researchers collected data about competition indicators on appropriately defined regional markets in Russia, evaluated firm level data to assess firm performance over time, and assessed economic regions and sectors with respect to productivity and employment growth. The study calculated indicators of firm dynamics, in particular entry and exit rates, productivity of entering and exiting firms relative to those firms which stay in the market, and the dispersion of size and productivity. Researchers estimated the impact of internal and external trade openness on firm performance.
