Study on the Relationship between Economic Growth and Air Pollution in the Pearl River Delta Region
Guangzhou Xinhua University, No.7, Yanjiang West 1st Road, Machong Town, Dongguan, China
To solve the problem of balancing the relationship between economic growth and air quality in the pearl river delta (PRD) region, based on selecting the indicators characterizing the environmental quality of the PRD region (i.e., the concentrations of four pollutants such as O3, SO2, NO2, and PM10) and the GDP of its three major industries during 2006-2021, this paper established a multiple linear regression model of the relationship between economic growth and air pollution in the PRD region, using E-Views and SPSS software. The results show that: the growth of the GDP in primary and tertiary industries in the PRD region will lead to the reduction of the concentration of air pollution; the growth of the GDP in secondary industries will lead to an increase in the concentration of air pollution. The suggestions based on the results are as follow: shifting the focus of industrial development, paying attention to the prospect of tertiary industry development, and continuously promoting the prevention and treatment of air pollution.
