报告内容摘要

For the past three decades, industrial parks have been thriving in China as a realization of the national place-based industrial policy. In this paper we evaluate the scarcely-discussed environmental consequences of industrial parks in urban China, using a unique 10-year panel dataset with information on 1568 industrial parks in 270 cities. Our empirical analyses are built on a Difference-in-Difference strategy with treated cities being those with industrial parks established during 2000-2006, and control cities being those selected through a Propensity Score Matching process. Our preliminary findings suggest an overall negative impact of industrial parks on urban environment. We further decompose the identified impact into scale effect, composition effect and technique effect, and show that scale effect contributes to the rise of most air pollutants. “Dirty” industrial parks with per GDP pollutant discharged higher than the level of host-city average tend to generate more severe pollution. Medium-size and small-size cities are found to attract more polluting firms with higher pollution intensity, relative to the large-size cities in our sample.
