ABSTRACT
The study presents evidence to show that Asian American and Hispanic American exporters export mostly to customers in countries with whom they have the most cultural affinity. Their export capability is determined by their personal traits, such as age, education and managerial experience. Some firm characteristics also play important role. The characteristics include the owners' financial commitments in start-up capital. This Start-up capital determines the firms' size and in turn affects the firms' ability to finance expensive export activity and the firms' future growth potentials. Other firm characteristics include sales receipt and the industry in which the firm is operating.
