The emergence and spatial distribution of Chinese seaport cities
Michael Funke and
No 11/2010, BOFIT Discussion Papers from Bank of Finland, Institute for Economies in Transition
Seaports have historically played a key role in facilitating trade and growth. This paper is the first attempt in the literature to analyse the formation of Chinese seaport cities and the dynamics that drives it. First, we aim to identify theoretically the emergence of urbanized seaports with the help of a formal economic geography model. Second, employing an empirically plausible parameterisation of the model, we calibrate the evolutionary process and spatial distribution of seaports along the Chinese coastline.
