An analysis of the role of vertical specialization in the development of China’s trade surplus: evidence from 2000–2007

Abstract:

This chapter examines the hypothesis that VS plays an important role in China’s trade surplus development. China’s standard statistics of trade surplus are amplified and sustainable due to VS using the I/O table of China over the period 2000–2007. We find evidence that China’s trade surplus has been amplified. Standard trade statistics give a wrong impression of the reality of export value-added per sector using the I/O table (2000/2002/2007) in China/Jiangsu/Guangdong.
