The Impact of Trade Facilitation Level of RCEP Member Countries on the Export of ICT Products in China

Jia Xie


Based on the panel data of RCEP member countries from 2000 to 2020, this paper constructs a trade facilitation evaluation system, calculates the facilitation level of each country, and empirically analyzes the impact of trade facilitation of RCEP member countries on China's ICT product exports using an extended gravity model. The study found that the higher the level of trade facilitation in member countries, the more obvious the promotion effect on the export of ICT products in China, and the four primary indicators of trade facilitation have a significant role in promoting the export of ICT products. China should strengthen cooperation with RCEP member countries, constantly deepen the development of trade facilitation in various countries, and create a good trade environment for the export of ICT products in China.
