Investopedia explains 'Export Incentives'


Export incentives make domestic exports competitive by providing a sort of kickback to the exporter. The government collects less tax in order to deflate the exported good's price, so the increased competitiveness of the product in the global market ensures that domestic goods have a wider reach. This level of government involvement can also lead to international disputes that may be settled by the World Trade Organization (WTO).
