Terrorist Activities against Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Exports from the United States to ASEAN Countries

Tam Bang Vu, Heng (Helen) Tien, and Jeffrey Pieper
Abstract—This research examines the impact of terrorist activities against Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries and the US exports to these countries over the period from 1988 to 2017. A traditional gravity model is extended to allow non-gravity variables such as terrorist activities and two policy-related variables: relative exchange rate and relative corruption level between the US and each of the ASEAN countries. We find that terrorist activities have negative and significant impacts on exports from the US to ASEAN countries both directly and indirectly.

Index Terms—Gravity model, terrorism, corruption level, exchange rate regimes.
