Then, overall sample will be divided into SOEs and non-SOEs groups, and each group will be further separated into politically connected and non-politically connected subgroups, respectively. Finally regression analysis will be conducted and conclusions will be drawn. This study is expected to make several theoretical and practical contributions.
