This book examines the growth experience in Chinese industry and manufacturing, with a special emphasis on the decomposition of growth, structural change, regional divergence and convergence, and technology spillovers. The decomposition analysis focuses on three dimensions: sectoral, regional and institutional. This book investigates regional productivity differentials and the provincial convergence trend in Chinese industry. Moreover, it explores the contribution of technological spillovers to the process of industrial growth and catching-up in Chinese regions. It includes an analysis of the regional, institutional and technological sources of growth.
