This chapter sets out to examine empirically the contribution of exports to regional resilience by providing empirical evidence from the Greek regions during the period 2008_2012. Exports have been a core subject in regional analysis and are regarded as one of the main drivers of economic performance of the regions. However, the role of exports during economic recessions has attracted relatively less attention in the literature. This chapter provides empirical evidence from Greece highlighting that exports constitute one of the factors shaping regional resilience during the economic crisis. However, initial conditions, sectoral specialization and adaptation capacity of the regions also play a critical role in influencing export performance and hence the resilience of regions to crisis.
