Abstract

Cross border e-commerce has become the main driving force for "activating" economic development and promoting high-quality development of import and export trade. The Chinese government has implemented the pilot policy of cross-border e-commerce comprehensive pilot zone. However, due to its short implementation cycle, can the cross-border e-commerce comprehensive pilot zone promote the development of cross-border e-commerce in China, thus promoting the growth of foreign trade? The multi period DID method was selected as an analytical tool to evaluate the policy effect of the cross-border e-commerce comprehensive pilot zone. The empirical results showed that the establishment of the cross-border e-commerce comprehensive pilot zone had a significant positive impact on the total export volume, and the policy effect of the establishment of the cross-border e-commerce comprehensive pilot zone was significant, which was tested through the parallel trend test and placebo test. The robustness of the conclusions is confirmed.
