This paper measures the PageRank of enterprise's import trade network by using the merging data from China industrial enterprises and Chinese Customs data from 2000 to 2013.Difference-in-differences method is used to systematically examine the impact of expressway on enterprise's status of import trade network.The results show that the opening of expressway can effectively improve the enterprise's status of import trade network.Expressway mainly improves enterprise's status of import trade network through import-diversity, scale effect of export and market-integration.Heterogeneous analysis shows that expressway mainly improves the status of import trade network of enterprises with high import-dependence and high traffic-dependence.In addition, this paper constructs instrumental variable of the opening of expressway through “minimum cost path” method, which solved the possible endogenous problems of the model.Finally, further analysis finds that the opening of expressway and the decline in tariffs can both improve domestic and foreign environment of trade.Expressway has a significant “amplification effect” on the positive impact of tariff decline on the improvement of enterprise's status of import trade network.
