The analysis made in the paper indicates that in contemporary economies the price plays a significant role only for countries with commodity-oriented exports. Generally speaking, the volume of exports plays – also in the 21st century – a bigger role as a driver of export. The old theory remains valid which emphasises the need for export diversification. A new and very interesting phenomenon can be observed in the 21st century – very high dynamics of Vietnam’s export value (an increase over 12 times). Exports of oil countries, which more than doubled in this period, has been rising at a slower pace than the world average.
