  【摘要】In this paper we investigate whether Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows ameliorate or deteriorate export quality of indigenous domestic firms in the same industry. We first build a heterogenous firm model with FDI entry to guide and provide insights to our empirical work. Relying on FDI regulation change upon China's accession into WTO that generates plausibly exogenous variations in FDI inflows across manufacturing industries, we find a significant negative spillover effect. Chinese firms facing more FDI presence within the industry tend to export lower quality products. We further uncover how firms adjust their quality by disentangling the effect along destination-production margins. we find that the average lower quality is mainly driven by firms adding lower quality products, dropping average quality products, while keeping the quality of continuous products unchanged.
