This paper studies the short-term impact that a carbon
pricing policy could have both on domestic and on export markets, in order to examine its impact on sectoral competitiveness in China. A competitiveness impact entailed by carbon price is defined as the incremental carbon cost that a carbon price engenders for a given sector which could change the sectors market position in domestic and/or foreign markets. Two complementary approaches are used for analyzing the short-term impact.
