This paper empirically explores small and medium enterprises export intensity dynamics in Argentina, over the 2004-2011 period, and its decomposition by regions and technology sectors. Evidence is presented about general determinants of the export intensity, defined as the exported share of total sales. Results confirm an export intensity contraction showing a larger size since 2007. High technology sectors present minor relative contraction, in the same way as central regions with large clusters and less costs. Finally, firm size effect differs across geographic region and technology sector.
