Abstract We study Chinese trade between 1997-2003 to see how the presence of multinational firms affected the quality, frequency and survival of new export transactions by private Chinese traders. By exploiting the richness of the data that come from fine geographic and product detail, we show how own-industry multinational firm presence helped to stimulate new trade, and to elevate the quality of those trades. In contrast, while we find that greater concentrations of other-industry multinational activity was associated with greater export introduction, and longer survival, other-industry exposure was also correlated with lower-valued export introductions.
