Summary/Abstract: High technology exporter countries can increase their export volume and value more easily than the countries exporting primary goods because of high income elasticity in hightechnology products. In this context this study investigates the main determinants of high-technology exports by using a wide panel data set and a wide range of economic, political and institutional variables for 48 countries with the highest high-technology export to manufactured export ratio. Both panel fixed effects and GMM methodologies have employed to examine the effect of a number of indicators such as, human capital, per capita income, trade openness, foreign direct investments, domestic saving, political stability, reel effective exchange rate, world income growth and patent applications for the period from 1980 to 2017. Estimation results show that trade openness, FDI inflows, per capita income and human capital are important factors that affect high-technology export performance of countries.
