There is a growing consensus that “what countries export matters for growth” (Haussman and al. (2007) and Krishna and Maloney (2011). Thus, the evolution of countries’ export baskets can provide useful clues as to how the underpinnings of long-term growth are changing overtime. Using two highly disaggregated export time series (products captured at the 11-digit level), this paper examines how Jordan and Tunisia’s production and export structures have changed over the last decade, in terms of technological content.
