Abstract

This article examines the impact of exchange rate changes on Chinese firms’ decisions on export market entry and export share. Using a large dataset for Chinese firms in 2000-2006, we find that changes in exchange rate levels play a significant role on both export extensive and intensive margins of Chinese firms. Compared to studies using macro data, our firm-level analysis allows us to control for firm and industry heterogeneity. Firm size and location matter. We do not find a difference between foreign and domestic firms in responding to exchange rate changes. Industry heterogeneity is also found to be important. [author's abstract]
