In addition, the lack of a generally accepted methodology for assessing export potential increases the significance of these studies from a methodological point of view. The purpose of this study is to analyse the trends in Latvian exports and assess the possibilities of increasing the volume of exports of goods to the EU countries. This study applied quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis, analysis of statistical data, methods for assessing the intensity, complementarity of trade between two countries and the potential for exporting Latvian goods to EU countries. The study identifies the countries and categories of goods where Latvian trade potential<br>to EU can be increased. The authors of the article propose criteria for determining possibility of increasing the export of various groups of goods. The paper may be of interest to all export transaction participants, including manufacturers, merchants, and professional associations. The export expansion assessment method applied by the authors may be adopted by exporting companies to identify groups of goods that have export growth reserves.</p> Erika Pancenko Tatyana Ivanova Copyright (c) 2021 Copernican Journal of Finance & Accounting 2021-09-25 2021-09-25 10 3 33 49 10.12775/CJFA.2021.010 THE PERSPECTIVE OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE ON THE INTERACTIONS OF INTERNAL AUDIT WITH MANAGMENT AND ITS IMPACT ON THE INTERNAL - EXTERNAL AUDIT LINKAGES <p>Literatures based on developed countries suggest an interaction of internal audit with management has impact on the internal-external audit linkages and the interactions and linkages have their own contribution toward the realization of good corporate governance. Nevertheless, these interactions have not been sufficiently explored in developing countries such as Ethiopia. This quantitative research examines in the form of explanatory study the interaction of internal audit with management and its impact on the internal- external audit linkages in Ethiopia. By doing so, it explained the causal relationship between variables through hypothesis testing. The research method of this study was a constructed questionnaire, which was sent to companies and to the 100 top management, internal auditors, and external auditors in Ethiopia. As it has been examined, existing findings suggest that organizations can enhance corporate governance’s effectiveness by strengthening the interactions of internal audit with management and in the meantime as the result of this impact by upgrading the internal-external audit linkages. In line with this, the results indicate interactions of internal audit with management depend on the level of the result of internal audits’ effectiveness, as the result, it positively moderates the internal-external audit linkages.</p> Dawit Tadesse Tiruneh Copyright (c) 2021 Copernican Journal of Finance & Accounting 2021-09-25 2021-09-25 10 3 51 70 10.12775/CJFA.2021.011 FOR AUTHORS <p>.</p> .
