I believe the discussion on export incentives should focus on having a public policy framework driven by exports. The distinction between tradables and non tradables does not seem particularly interesting in this context. The main point should be the evaluation of public policy options, including investment options, according to an export promotion criteria. Moreover, we should not discard the need to have a policy of positive export discrimination, as long as it is consistent with the Lisbon Treaty.
