Impact of Beijing Olympic-related Investments on Regional Economic Growth of China: Interregional Input-Output Approach *

  • Economics


Using the interregional input-output model, the present paper analyzes the impact of Olympic-related investments on the economic development of Beijing and its surrounding areas, as well as the rest of China. The interregional input-output model provides a satisfactory simulation and analysis of Olympic-related investments that are implemented in Beijing and other areas and their spillover effects on other regions. We estimate that from 2002 to 2007, Olympic-related investments will add 2.02, 0.23 and 0.09�percent annually to gross regional products of Beijing, its surrounding areas and the rest of China, respectively.
