We investigate how trade liberalization affects the performance of Chinese manufacturing firms via sourcing from the South. Taking imports from Indonesia, the largest country in Southeast Asia —China’s current trading partner as an example, we find that Chinese firms with higher import shares from Indonesia perform better in productivity, exports, and sales, and they are more likely to engage in processing exports. Moreover, the impacts of foreign trade liberalization on China’s export scopes are more pronounced for firms with larger import shares from Indonesia. Such findings are robust to different empirical specifications.
