Abstract:

This study examines the effects of China’s industrial clustering on the resource reallocation efficiency across firms. Based on a county-industry level panel dataset from 1998-2007, we find that industrial clustering significantly increases local industries’ productivities by lifting the average firm productivity and reallocating resources from less to more productive firms. The identification issues are carefully addressed by instrumental variable (IV) regressions. Furthermore, we find evidence that the positive effect of clustering on resource reallocation efficiency is likely through intensified local competition, given that: (i) both entry and exit rate are much higher in clusters than in non-clusters and (ii) the dispersion of individual firm markup is significantly reduced within clusters, suggesting pro-competitive effect of industry clustering.
