Export Requirements and Special Features of Inward Foreign Direct Investment in China
The paper investigates the relationship between the policy of export requirements and special features of China's inward foreign direct investment (FDI), and examines how trade-related investment measures affect the investment decisions of multinational firms. A theoretical model is constructed that allows us to analyse how location advantages affect the equilibrium regime under which multinational firms and government policy toward FDI co-exist endogenously. The model also exam the welfare effects of export requirements policy by comparing with an alternative policy - production tax. The findings from this study accord well with the evidence regarding China's inward FDI. The main results indicate that the policy of export requirements is sub-optimal.
