Foreign Trade and Sustainable Development
In this chapter we focus on the relationship between foreign trade and sustainable development in the case of the Chinese regions. Foreign trade may affect pollution outcomes and the environment via various different channels. The first channel is the so-called scale effect that is usually thought of as harmful to the environment, which pertains to the scenario where the expansion of domestic production pressured by increasing trade openness results in more environmental pollution.
