We estimate the local multiplier effects of exports on GDP and employment at the city level in China. Based on Eaton and Kortum (2002), we first build a two-sector multicity general equilibrium model to examine the mechanisms through which the local multiplier effects arise. We show that the export-GDP multiplier is determined by five sufficient statistics: the share of labor in local production, the share of tradable intermediate inputs in local production, the within-city expenditure share in the tradable sector, the share of other cities’ expenditure on tradable goods produced in the city, and the share of consumption expenditure on tradable goods. In addition to these factors, the export-employment multiplier also depends on local employment and the wage elasticity of employment. Using 1999-2014 city level panel data, we find that every 1000 yuan of gross exports in a city generates 919 yuan in local GDP. Moreover, a one million yuan increase in gross exports creates 5.8 jobs; for every 100 new jobs in the tradable sector, 77 new jobs are created in the non-tradable sector. To address the endogeneity of changes in local exports, we use an instrumental variable that combines the changed tariffs on Chinese goods and cross-city variations in the composition of exporting industries. Looking into different sectors of the local economy, we find that exports have the largest effect on GDP and employment in the manufacturing sector and little effect in the agricultural sector. The export-GDP and export-employment multiplier effects are heterogeneous across cities. Finally, we estimate the export-GDP and export-employment multipliers for each city in China using the formulas from the theoretical model.
