Nor Asma Ahmad and Azila Jaini and Zaminor Zamzamir@Zamzamin (2015) The impact of infrastructure on trade in Malaysia. Journal of Entrepreneurship and Business, 3 (2). pp. 42-49. ISSN 2289-8298


This study examines the role of infrastructure on trade in Malaysia from 1980 to 2013. The
main objective is to test the addition of infrastructure into the augmented gravity equation and to
examine the effects on trade through improvements in infrastructure. The impact of infrastructure on
trade between Malaysia and 36 countries was examined using panel data analysis. The robustness of
the results was tested by applying the pooled OLS, random effect model, and fixed effect model. The
Hausman results offer support to the fixed effect model. The findings showed that all variables of
infrastructures are significant and positive corresponding to the volume of trade between Malaysia and
its trading partners.
