Experience matters - trade duration and survival of coffee exports

This paper estimates trade duration of raw coffee exports into the European Union (EU) market comparing different discrete-time duration models using monthly trade panel data from 1988 to 2013. As coffee is an important export commodity and revenue generator for many developing and least developed economies, successful and long-term trade relationships are essential. Results reveal that major gravity model variables also explain duration of EU coffee imports. Moreover, we find that both, exporting countries and importing county characteristics, matter in explaining duration of trade. Keywords: Trade duration, Discrete-time Analysis
