N ° 2012 – 05 Real Exchange Rate and Economic Growth : Evidence from Chinese Provincial Data

Abstract

This paper studies the role of the real exchange rate in economic growth and in the convergence of growth rates among provinces in China. Using data from 28 Chinese provinces for the period 1992–2008 together with dynamic panel data estimation, I find conditional convergence among coastal provinces and also among inland provinces. The results reported here confirm the positive effect of real exchange rate appreciation on economic growth in the provinces. JEL classifications: O53, F31
