Abstract: Chinese firms faced an all-around trade liberalization process during the early 2000s: lower trade barriers from other countries on Chinese final goods, and lower Chinese barriers on other countries` final goods and inputs. Using novel firm-level tariff data for trading Chinese manufacturing firms from 2000 to 2006, this paper disentangles the effects of each type of trade liberalization on Chinese firm-level employment. The exercise distinguishes firms by type (pure processing firm, ordinary non-importer, or ordinary importer) and productivity. For all types of firms, the results show that trade liberalization in final goods from a reduction in either Chinese tariffs or China`s partners tariffs is associated with job destruction in low-productivity firms and job creation in high-productivity firms. The same happens after Chinese input trade liberalization, but only for ordinary importing-exporting _rms. To guide the interpretation of the results, the paper presents a heterogeneous firm model with trade in both tasks and final goods, which identifies the different forces through which each type of trade liberalization affects employment in each type of firm.
