AbstractGovernment support systems are crucial for export SMEs (Small to Medium Enterprises) to cope with growing international environmental regulations.

Based on 350 samples from Korea and 320 from China, we diagnosed government supports most positively affects corporate performances in the area of eco-innovation.
