Key Province and Municipalities and Local Government Responses: The multi-level impact of BRI on firm performance and internationalization
presented by 
Associate Professor Artemis Chang 

ABSTRACT

Since President Xi Jinping put forward the important initiatives of the silk road economic belt and the 21st century maritime silk road in 2013, China’s provinces have attached great importance to the construction of the “Belt and Road” Initiative (BRI) and regarded it as an important measure of all-round opening-up in the new era. However, in practice, the trade differences between Chinese provinces and their response to the on BRI are quite large. Using a mixed methods approach based on provinces responses and econometric models of listed firms, this paper discusses the difference of local government’s policy response to BRI and its impact on firms’ growth performance and internationalization. This paper contributes to our understanding of the interaction between local government responses to a central policy and regional microeconomics.
