This research finds that firms serving non-metropolitan regional markets tend to have low exports, relying on suppliers and customers as sources of innovation. These firms import knowledge to a region. On the other hand, firms serving transnational markets export products or services beyond their regional or national milieu, and rely on internal R&D as a source of innovation.
