The Impact of Foreign Direct Investment on International Trade: An Empirical Study of China
Dalarna University, School of Technology and Business Studies, Economics.
2008 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years))Student thesis
Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the impact of inward FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) on international trade of China empirically on the country level by using panel data from 1984 to 2007. Two separate transformed models which are based on the gravity equation and refer to the econometric models of some previous studies, are used in this paper to estimate the effect of FDI inflows on exports and imports respectively. The estimation results confirmed the complementary relationship between FDI inflows and trade of China both on exports and imports, which has also been supported by previous empirical studies.
