To combat causality, we only use exports of new products or exports to new goals. We see that trade facilitation has a positive impact on large trade margins. The results are robust compared to other large margin definitions, different sets of controls, and different estimation methods. The results of the simulation show large margins being higher as a result of trade facilitation reform in sub-Saharan Africa as well as in Latin America and the Caribbean.
