Since the entry of China into WTO, the increasingly active foreign trade activities of China have played a huge role in promoting the economic growth and development of our country. At the same time, TBT (Technical barriers to Trade) has developed rapidly and become a non-tariff barrier for the export of Chinese foreign trade enterprises. As a result, the export of mechanical and electrical products in China has been greatly affected by the TBT of importing countries. In this paper, the current situation of technical barriers to trade in the export of mechanical and electrical products in China is first expounded, and the negative and positive effects of technical barriers to trade on the export of mechanical and electrical products of our country are analyzed. Then, based on the trade gravity model, using the panel data of 26 trading countries of China from 2008 to 2017, this paper empirically investigates the influence of importing country's TBT on the export of mechanical and electrical products of China, and analyzes the reasons why Chinese mechanical and electrical products export encounters with TBT according to the above research. According to these reasons, the corresponding countermeasures are put forward.
