Using the Heckscher–Ohlin–Samuelson–Vanek (HOSV) framework, this paper illustrates a relationship between corruption and the pattern of international trade that depends on the factor endowments of countries.

The regression results provide strong support to the hypothesis that the effect of corruption on trade openness depends on relative factor abundance.
