Abstract:

Local government land transfer behavior plays an important role in China’s economic development, and its negative impact is also widely criticized. Therefore, it has attracted much attention of scholars and the research focus has gradually changed from individual local government level to the effects of interaction among local governments. This study distinguished the stock construction land, examined the interaction effect of local government transferring newly-increased construction land, and analyzed its regional differences and usage differences in order to comprehensively understand and form targeted regulations of newly-increased construction land transfer behavior. The empirical analysis of the data of 279 prefecture-level cities from 2007 to 2016 based on the spatial econometric model generated the following conclusions: (1) Local governments transferring newly-increased construction land exist significant interaction influence; (2) Regionally, the interaction effect of local government transferring newly-increased construction land is particularly obvious in the eastern region; (3) With regard to land-use types, the interaction effect of local government transferring newly-increased construction land is more obvious in commercial and industrial land; (4) Based on the traditional method of regional division, dividing the eastern, central, western, and northeast regions to analyze the interaction effect of local government transferring newly-increased construction land in different regions, respectively, will result in the interaction coefficient of each region being smaller than the national average. This article provides a more precise policy implication for the central government to regulate the expansion of construction land, which should focus on the following key areas: (1) newly-increased construction land; (2) eastern region; (3) commercial and industrial land. This study provides some important reference for future research on the interaction effect of local government transferring construction land and its regional differences.
