摘要：Since the performance excellence mode (PEM) was officially introduced in China in 2004, governments at various levels then promoted enterprises to implement PEM by establishing the Government Quality Award'. Analysing the economic benefits brought by the Quality Award in the Chinese context can promote governments and enterprises to continue improving PEM, resulting in practical significance. Considering the 110 enterprises in 16 cities which have been awarded with the Anhui Provincial Government Quality Award and Municipal Government Quality Award as a sample, the paper finds the benefit-cost ratio of award-winning enterprises is 730.57:1 by a counterfactual method, and governments in Anhui Province have invested CNY 39.067 million since they established the Governmikent Quality Award, which has stimulated enterprises to invest CNY 215.5939 million. If the Government Quality Award was not promoted, enterprises would have to invest CNY 951.1675 million to achieve the same performance. The results provide evidence of the powerful effect of the Government Quality Award in China and suggest that governments which play important roles in the economy field should promote Quality Award projects continually.
