Exports and air quality in China : evidence from provincial level

by Li, Shupeng

Abstract

International trade has allowed the Chinese economy to boom and “Made in China” tags to dominate the world market. However, a number of studies have argued that the rapidly growing Chinese economy has placed great amount of pressure on its natural environment. The emphasis on export-led growth may bring in its wake, pollution to China. This thesis gives empirical evidence to the question that whether exports in China have caused environmental issues, especially air pollution. I use data from 31 provinces in mainland China over the period from 2002 to 2012. The results show that there is no strong relationship between air pollution in China and its exports, but the economic growth in general has hazardous impacts onto the environment.
