Abstract

This paper analyses the impact on China's economy from its accession to the WTO. Using a two-region Chinese CGE model, the analysis shows the gains China would derive from a more efficient allocation of resources and from the elimination of MFA quota. It also indicates that the gains are unevenly distributed across sectors and across provinces. The paper's most original contribution is to assess the impact at the regional level.
