Ten export barrier were listed and the result shows the five main problems are “Adapt Products”,” Fluctuating Exchange Rate”, “Lack of Foreign Channels of Distribution”, “Risks Involved in Selling Abroad”, “Lack of Capital to Finance” and “High Cost of Selling Abroad” regardless of the type of industries.

It is also found that with more years of experience in exporting the weaker will be the barriers since firms are able to cope better and learn from their experiences.
