内容摘要:

This paper studies how exporting firms' inventory responds to a reduction in trade policy uncertainty. Using firm-level data on inventory and exports to the United States and other countries over the period around China's WTO accession, we show that reduction in trade policy uncertainty significantly increases exporting firms' inventory stocks. We also find that the reduction in trade policy uncertainty increases the frequency of export transactions and the average volume of each transaction.
