Governments intervene in exports markets with two purposes: to increase exports flows and to select sectors on which to concentrate policy efforts. The former responds to the idea that exports are a motor for economic growth and that trade openness contributes to a better allocation of economic resources. The latter, to the idea that what we export matters. Why should governments intervene? The economic literature‘s answer is: to solve market failures impeding that markets on their own produce the optimal outcomes for society.
