Effects of Reducing Tariffs and Endogenous Productivity Growth
In this study, the effects of China's WTO commitments of reducing tariff and non-tariff barriers are analysed using a Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model of China. In particular, this study draws the attention of policy makers to a different regional employment outcome when trade-liberalisation induced productivity improvements are taken into account. Trade-liberalisation induced productivity improvements occur when local producers survive import competition by seeking (most likely importing) input-saving technologies and production practice. Such endogenous productivity improvements, based on empirical estimates, are endogenously represented in the model.
