Innovation and internationalization are two basic growth strategies which contend for both the firms' and governments resources. At the same time, they are linked by a two-way relationship that has been widely documented in previous studies. However, often preceding literature is disconnected and does not integrate innovation and export promotion studies into the analysis.

As a result, a list of recommendations is deduced both for management and public policy regarding the development of these two strategies.
