Can Foreign Direct Investment Increase Productivity of Domestic Firms? A new strategy to Identify FDI spillovers from borders of Chinese dialect zones

Abstract:

Most developing countries adopt policies to attract foreign direct investment (FDI), hoping that multinational firms can bring knowledge spillovers and raise productivity of domestic firms. This study identifies positive productivity spillovers from FDI, employing discontinuous increase in investment from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan (HMT) to mainland China at geographical borders of Chinese dialect zones. Using spatial regression discontinuity design, I find that HMT investment to a location right inside the region that speaks the same dialect as HMT is 5 to 7 percentage points (20 percent) higher than a location right outside. Using this discontinuous increase at the dialect borders due to cultural similarity as exogenous variations, I find positive horizontal productivity spillovers to domestic firms. A 1 percentage point increase in the share of HMT firms raises productivity of domestic firms in the same location and industry by around 3 to 4 percent.
