Industrial agglomeration and domestic value added of enterprise exports: localization paths of global value chain upgrading
Management World,2019,Vol 35,No. 08
This paper is the first to place industrial agglomeration, which represents the localized production system, and the domestic value added (DVA) of enterprise exports, which measures the trade gains of enterprises and their status in the division of labor in the global value chain (GVC), into a unified analysis framework, and discuss the relationship between industrial agglomeration and the domestic value added ratio (DVAR) of enterprise exports by using China’s micro data from 2000 to 2007. The research shows that industrial agglomeration significantly improves the export DVAR of Chinese enterprises, and such positive effect is stronger among general trade enterprises, Private-owned enterprises (POEs) and enterprises in the eastern region. After deconstructing the externality of agglomeration, this paper finds that it is an important action mechanism for industrial agglomeration to promote DVAR through the Marshall externalities (including labor pool, input sharing and knowledge spillover) and the financing externalities caused by clustering trade credit by increasing enterprise cost plus and reducing the relative price of domestic intermediate goods. Finally, this paper also finds that the effect of industrial agglomeration on promoting enterprise export DVAR is not at the cost of reducing the import and export scale of enterprises or sacrificing their participation in globalization, but more through the specific realization path of the structural effect that causes enterprises to shift from the processing trade mode with low export DVAR to the general trade mode with high export DVAR; the analysis from the micro-enterprise level to the meso-industry level again proves the structural effect caused by the transformation of enterprise trade mode is an important path for industry agglomeration to promote the growth of industry export DVAR. This paper verifies that industrial agglomeration can be used as a localized path for the GVC upgrading of Chinese enterprises.

Based on the data of China Household Income Project (CHIP) of 1995, 2002, 2007 and 2013 conducted by the Research Group of CHIP, this paper discusses the sectoral factors in the gender wage gap. This paper finds that the gender wage gap decreased from 2007 to 2013. Oaxaca-Blinder (O-B) decomposition is carried out on the gender wage function containing sectoral factors, and the results after 2002 show that sectoral factors narrow the gender wage gap. The characteristics of wage distribution show that industry distribution has a higher explanatory effect on the gender gap at the lower quantile of wage distribution, but the sectoral effect of gender wage gap at the quantiles is mainly explained by discriminatory factors. There is serious gender discrimination in most sectors. The discriminatory factors in the sectors are main reasons for the gender wage gap. The sectoral selection based on observable characteristics also partially explains the gender wage gap, but the sectoral selection caused by unobservable factors is beneficial to female wages.
