"China and the WTO: the impact on China and the world economy"
by Lejour, Arjan


Abstract
This paper focuses on the impact of China’s accession to the WTO on the sectoral production within China and its main trading partners. The accession would mainly benefit other countries in South-East Asia. Within China itself the sectors Wearing Apparel and Electronic Equipment would expand, while sectors as Motor Vehicles and Lumber and Wood will lose due to the abolition of the high protective barriers in these sectors. The outcomes are however affected if tariff exemptions for intermediate and investment goods are modelled. If these exemptions are not introduced, the sector Textile declines while it expands if we take account of exemptions. The reason is that a large share of these goods is used for intermediate inputs. For sectors like Leather Products and Food Processing, the output of which are often used for final consumption, the opposite result prevails.
