Wen, H.D. and Tan, J.R. (2010) An Empirical Study of the Impact of China’s Foreign Trade and FDI on Employment: Based on the Comparison of Eastern, Central and Western Data before and after WTO Entry. Journal of International Trade, 8, 102-109.
ABSTRACT: As an important aspect of the industrial structure, the employment structure can better reflect the real production, true lifestyle and income distribution, and it is a key indicator to measure the development of the city. As a symbol of the openness and development of the super city, FDI has become one of the core drivers for employment structure optimization. Based on the three perspectives of sector structure, space structure and quality structure of Beijing’s employment, a dual-coupling model is established to investigate the interaction mechanism and coupling effects between FDI and employment structure and to examine the role of FDI in optimizing the employment structure of Beijing. Results show that the employment structure system is better developed than FDI system, and there are coupling effects between FDI and employment structure in terms of employment sector-structure and quality-structure, while the coupling effects are not obvious in terms of space structure.
