This paper investigates the industry-specific hypotheses of the determinants of intra-industry trade (IIT) in the context of policy liberalization in Australia. Results suggest that IIT is positively related to economies of scale but negatively to foreign participation in the pre-liberalization period. However, in the post-liberalization period, IIT is positively related to economies of scale but negatively to product differentiation and foreign participation.
