Abstract

The increasing openness of Chinese economy gives a new interest to the changing spatial organisation of industry. The models developed by KRUGMAN and by VENABLES predict an increase in the spatial concentration of industry as international openness grows. Until now, this idea has been applied to very few situations and only in Europe and in the United States. The aim of this article is to investigate the impact of the openness of China to international trade on the industrial specialisation of the regions. We initially use an ISARD indicator in order to evaluate the evolution of regional specialisations. Secondly, we carry out an econometric test on panel data thus determining the more or less strong specialisation of the regions according to the openness to international trade.
