Summary
The research issue addressed by this paper is the effect of migrations on trade and, in particular, the idea that the gradual development of migrant communities in destination countries leads to an intensification of bilateral trade flows with their origin countries, by lowering the informational and relational costs of establishing new cross-border transactions. In other words, migration flows can be seen as a knowledge transmission channel between origin and destination countries. The kind of knowledge circulating through migration networks contains valuable specific information on import and export opportunities. Its diffusion cuts the sunk costs for the firms who want to engage in trade relationships between the two countries, expanding the "extensive margin" of trade. We perform this statistical analysis by considering both residence permits and bilateral trade of Italy with origin countries at the provincial level. In particular, the residence permits are a unique dataset that has never been explored beforehand. Our preliminary results point to a strong nonlinear effect of distance on the trade-migration relationship: closer origin countries seem to experience an appreciable correlation, whereas this is not so for further countries. In other words, the informational advantage that networks of migrants can offer seems to count only when distance is not so large
