The Impact of Green Trade Barriers on Chinese Agricultural Products Export—an Empirical Study Based on Free Trade Zone
Download as PDF
This paper has used the data of Chinese agricultural exports from Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, the United States, Canada and Mexico from 2002 to 2016. These countries represented as the three major free trade zones to conduct empirical research. I am using the gravity model to carry out the regression analysis of variables. And then I test to examine the impact of green trade barriers on Chinese agricultural exports. The empirical results showed that green trade barriers do hinder agricultural exports in the short run, but green trade barriers have a positive effect on exports in the long run. Finally I based on the analysis of this paper to propose a series of countermeasures to deal with green trade barriers.
