In the current severe economic situation, resulting from the cessation and/or drastic reduction of economic activity due to the containment measures adopted after the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic, the study of how countries can try to overcome this crisis can be approached from different perspectives.Unlike previous crises, this crisis is affected by supply factors (such as the paralysis of production in many countries) and demand factors (internal and external), which is having a major impact on tourism, not only because of mobility restrictions but also because of the fear that there is still of a resurgence.In previous crises exports were an important variable so that economies, such as Galicia, could start to grow when domestic demand had not yet recoveredIn this paper we analyse the role of exports on economic growth. We use several econometric models, such as the estimation of the expanded Cobb-Douglas production function and several dynamic models. The results will give us an estimate of the important role of this variable in open economies, such as the Galician one
