Abstract (Chinese)
本文应用Novy(2013)中的贸易壁垒比率,通过实 证分析研究了中国人民共和国国内省际贸易壁垒的变化和引起变化的原因,并结合实地调查研究以确定当前国内的贸易环境。此项研究结果表明中国国内存在省际贸 易壁垒,且贸易壁垒随时间和地区差异而变化。实证分析结果显示中国省际贸易壁垒高度依赖于产业化、国际贸易保护及国内交通基础设施。实地调查结果与实证分 析结果相左。 本文还就二者差异产生的可能因素及其影响进行了相关讨论。
Abstract
This thesis applies a methodology based on the Novy (2013) ratio of trade barriers to identify variations in barriers to cross-provincial trade in the People’s Republic of China, econometrically tests for determinants of such variations, and together with the results of a field study determines the state of the current trade environment. Results of this study show the presence of such barriers to trade, and that those barriers have been varying over time as well as across provinces. Econometric testing shows that barriers to cross-provincial trade are highly dependent on transport infrastructure, international trade protection and industrialization. The field study contrasts both the results from the initial analysis and the econometric... (More)
