The Role of Non-Market Factors in International Trade: A Case of Southern Africa
Mikhail Grachev and Mariya Bobina
Volume 18, Number 2, Fall 2017 (pp. 102 ~ 125)

This study examines the impacts of non-market factors on international trade in four regionally clustered African countries (Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe). It applies the concept of cross-national distance from international business and incorporates statistical and empirically generated data into the augmented gravity models of international trade to predict the impact of those non-market factors. The study reveals negative effects of geographic distance and positive or mixed cultural distance effects in these countries¡¯ foreign trade flows. This paper also suggests useful implications to business scholars and practitioners.

Key Words: Africa, geographic distance, cultural distance, international trade, gravity model
