Abstract: Existing studies produced mixed results with regards to the analysis of the impact of trade liberalization on the domestic markets, especially when the studies were researching on the impact of import penetration from China. Since joining the WTO in 2001, China has been able to keep its competitive edge in the international market with its low-wage labour market. This has caused tremendous import penetration pressure on its rivals, especially the United States, claimed that China’s import penetration resulted in the increase of local unemployment and lower productivity of local firms, even naming this phenomenon as “China Syndrome”. Hence, we analyzed the effects of China’s import penetration on local firm to determine if Singapore is also affected by “China Syndrome”.
