The Impact of the EU-South Korea Free Trade Agreement on EU's Exports
Czakojová, Kristýna ; Polák, Petr (advisor) ; Vacek, Pavel (referee)
1 Abstract To support exports, the European Union (EU) and South Korea concluded the EU-South Korea free trade agreement (FTA) in 2010. An objective of the FTA was to reduce or remove barriers to international trade. This thesis examines the impact of the FTA on EU's exports. The gravity model of international trade was applied in the study with using the data over the years 2005-2017. The hypothesis was tested using static and dynamic GLS random and fixed effects, static LSDV model and dynamic GMM model. The two-step SYS- GMM model was concluded as a valid estimate. Empirical analysis shows that the exports between the two countries are predicted to be about 13.8 % higher if they have signed the EU-South Korea Free trade agreement, holding other factors fixed. Moreover, a positive impact of GDP and a negative impact of distance on export were detected, as expected.
Efficiency of export financing in the world
Czakojová, Kristýna ; Vozková, Karolína (advisor) ; Palanský, Miroslav (referee)
This thesis deals with efficiency of export financing in the Czech Republic and in the world. Three basic institutional forms of export credit agencies are analyzed in the thesis. Each of the countries represents one particular institutional form, specifically the Czech Republic (bank and insurance company), the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (only insurance company) and the United States of America (eximbank). The research is done in the data over the years 2005-2015. We use the gravity model of international trade in the study. It was found by employing empirical analysis that the most effective export credit agency is the dual system of export promotion in the Czech Republic. In addition, a positive effect of GDP on export was detected. Moreover, distance has a negative influence on export except for one estimate. Both of these findings were expected to be identified within the gravity model. 1
