“Abstract: In this talk, I will firstly describe the different performance by firm size in China’s. Secondly, I willintroduce the compilation of the extended Chinese input-output model that distinguishes the production oflarge, medium, and small-sized enterprises for 2012 (LMS model). Then we will apply the LMS model toexplore the exports related economic gains and environmental costs. The results show that SMEs generatedmore than 60% of China’s industrial total value-added and CO2 emissions. The value added per unit exportof large-sized firms is the lowest, while that of small-sized firms is the highest. The pattern of embodied CO2emission of different sized firms emerging a similar performance with value added, which indicates that largefirms exported cleaner than SMEs. Finally, I will also talk about the impacts of COVID-19 on jobs by firmsize”
