Foreign direct investment and environmental pollution in China: a simultaneous equations estimation

Bao, Qun; Chen , Yuanyuan; Song, Ligang


This study investigates the effects of foreign direct investment (FDI) on emissions of five pollutants in China using a panel data set of 29 provinces over the period 1992-2004. The study applies a simultaneous equations estimation technique to estimate the scale, technique and composition effects of FDI on China's overall and regional pollution emissions. The estimation results show that FDI in general helps reduce pollution emissions in China, contributing largely to its technique effect....[Show more]
