Lanxin Zhang


The purpose of this study is to explore the influence of digital economy on the development level of China's export trade under the background of rapid global economic development, and to analyze the process of this influence.  It is found that the development level of digital economy has no significant negative impact on the development of export trade. In terms of regional heterogeneity, the development of digital economy has a stronger and positive impact on the development of export trade in western China than in central and eastern China. This paper puts forward some targeted policy suggestions.
