Managerial and Decision Economics 31 (7) : 453-463. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1002/mde.1500||Abstract:||Based on 287 of the largest clothing manufacturing firms in southern China in terms of output value, we employed data envelopment analysis to estimate the technical efficiency of the sample firms. A regression analysis was conducted to examine the effects of export orientation on technical efficiency. Our results suggest a U-shaped relationship between export ratio and technical efficiency. The specific nature of the industry in Guangdong province can explain that clothing firms with a high degree of sales in the domestic market or with a high level of export orientation experience a higher level of technical efficiency than those firms trying to conquer both the local and the overseas markets. © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.||Source Title:||Managerial and Decision Economics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/49768||ISSN:||01436570||DOI:||10.1002/mde.1500|
