The study explores how bureaucratic efficiency effects international
trade in Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, and Srilanka. A
composite indicator of government effectiveness is used
to measure bureaucratic efficiency and model is
estimated by using the SYS-GMM. It is well recognized
that bureaucratic efficiency is vital to the enhancement
of trade, whereas the result shows that a negative
relationship exists between bureaucratic efficiency and
trade openness. Similarly, encouraging link exists
between government size and international trade as the
government provides different services to enhance the
trade at the international market.
