A Case Study on the Environmental Regulation,the Factor Endowment and the International Competitiveness in Industries

Fu Jingyan and Li Lisha  
Is the degree of stringency of environmental regulations the determinants of the comparative advantage of China's industrial manufactured goods? Does this stringency impact on the international competitiveness of China's industries that pollute the environment? The answer to the above questions is conducive to quickening the transformation of China' s growth mode of trade and to relieving the pressure of environment and resources.Environmental regulations and factor endowments are the two elements of a country's comparative advantage,and their decisive impact on specialization is different.In this paper,we have used the panel data of 1996-2004 on China's 24 manufacturing industries and constructed the index of the industrial environmental regulations and the index of the intensity of industrial pollution,both of which comprehensively reflect Chin's actuality,to analyze the effect of the environmental regulations,the effect of factor endowments and the mechanism of the function of the industrial international competitiveness.The main conclusions are as follows:by the analyses of the indexes of comparative advantages and the pollution intensity,we have discovered that China' s pollution-intensive industries have no comparative advantages and that,therefore,China does not allow herself to be a"pollution haven"of developed countries.The indexes of environmental regulations,the physical capital and the human capital—all have negative effect on comparative advantages.In addition,there is a positive correlation between the quadratic term of environmental regulations and comparative advantages,which demonstrate that U-shaped is the impact of environmental regulations on comparative advantages.
