This paper reviews several studies of the determinants of exports in South Africa in the light of the policy directions, which have emphasised the importance of an export led growth path for the economy. Major trading partners and the composition of trade are examined as are the role of the real exchange rate, capital intensity, research and development, export incentives and the vent for surplus theories of export behaviour.
