This volume, based on a series analysis using up-to-date econometric technique, systematically investigates the role that
exports and foreign direct investment (FDI) have played in China's development process, and questions the received wisdom
that exports and FDI are always an unalloyed blessing. It focuses on the transmission mechanisms through which exports and
FDI influence growth and economic development and investigates the impact of exports and FDIs on employment, development financing
and productivity growth, amongst other issues, in China.
