Research on high-speed railway construction and the change of economic gravitation
Beijing Jiaotong University School of Economics and Management Beijing China
The construction of high-speed railway(HSR) can not only improve the quality of transportation infrastructure in China, but also has a significant impact on regional economy. The influence of HSR construction on economic connection intensity in the context of the coordinated development of cities in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region is investigated. Based on the improved Gravity Model(GM), the research shows that HSR has a positive effect on the economic gravitation, while the influence of spatial distance on economic connections of cities is negative. According to empirical analysis, it represents an obvious Coreperiphery structure after HSR is opened. It also reveals that the regional economic development is unbalanced, which is caused by the poor transportation infrastructure. In addition, the paper further offers a perspective of how to promote regional economy.
