Abstract/Summary Export promotion programs (EPP’s) are commonly used, especially in developed economies, to enhance national export performance. However, the specific goals of such schemes are often unclear and assessment of effectiveness is difficult. This paper discusses EPP objectives as presented in the literature and highlights the difficulty in assessing outcomes. We use network analysis to demonstrate the ability of countries to improve their position in the global trade system and by so doing to improve national economic welfare. This insight presents an alternative goal available to governments in developing national EPP’s, namely, targeting an increased number of international trade connections which their country.
