English term or phrase: export similarity
"It is interesting to note that the export similarity of country X with country Y (an indicator of exposure to price competition) is fairly low."

The term is related to the export similarity index developed by Finger and Kreinin (see A Measure of 'Export Similarity' and its possible uses", The Economic Journal, 89 (December 1979), 905-912).

Although I have a fairly good idea of what 'export similarity' means thanks to the above-mentioned article, I haven't found (and can't come up with) a good equivalent in Dutch.

The best I can come up with is "exportverwantschap" or "exportgelijkenis".
