Formatted abstract This thesis argues that in an analysis of the firm's decision to export there is strong evidence to support the conclusion that, irrespective of the competitive position of the firm, government information provision services are in many cases more cost efficient and effective in export promotion than direct financial subsidies. This work will thus attempt to illustrate how Government information provision services are more effective in initiating the firm's decision to export and in maintaining such an activity, than direct financial subsidies, by comparing the effects of these respective policies on the various stages of the firm's internationalization process. The analysis will concentrate especially on the pre-export and initial exporting stages of the activity and bring forward empirical evidence to support the conclusion that many firm's reluctance and/or difficulties in exporting are related to a lack of information, which can in many cases be provided by Government Information Services. Moreover this thesis will examine Australia's current export promotion policies and propose a number of reforms in light of the above analysis.
