The main idea of the presentation:
How to construct a multi-year multi-regional input-output database for a large country? – Experiences from China
China has a large territory and numerous provinces with different resource endowments, locational conditions, and development foundations. These variances lead to a large amount of interprovincial trade and a complex trade network. As an efficient method to describe the economic links between regions, the Multi-Regional Input-Output (MRIO) model has been widely used to analyze the economy-related issues. However, as China’s nation-wide data have been well developed, the regional data are still fragmental. In this presentation, we will show our experience of building a multi-year MRIO database of the mainland China covering 30 provinces (except for Tibet due to data limitation) and 33 sectors of 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007, and 2012.
