- The competitiveness of China’s service trade has long been focused. Researchers often use different indices to estimate it. However the characteristics of trade changed a lot due to the production segmentation. Intermediate goods become the main part of trade and lead to double counting problems of trade statistics. The indices established on trade statistics probably biased. Therefore, this paper uses MRIO model and WIOD database to calculate China’s value-added trade from 1995 to 2009, which excluded the double counting part, and then re-estimates RCA index to analysis China’s service trade competitiveness in the global value chain. Results find that trade statistics underestimate China’s RCA of service trade. The Transportation and Hotels and Restaurants are more competitive while the high value-added industries, such as Financial Intermediation and Post and Telecommunication are less competitive.
