    Abstract

    This paper surveys the development of the vegetable sector in China over the past 20 years. It is part of the ongoing Catch-up Project which embraces several sectoral systems of innovation in a number of developing countries under a “learning capability/knowledge-base interactions” framework for analysis and comparison. The work traces the evolutionary process of the sector development and analyzes the driving forces and source of opportunity. The paper then goes on to analyze the development of market institutions that backed up the emergence, expansion and deepening of the sector, the transformation of technological and knowledge regimes and capability building, and sorts out the roles that the government played in the development of the sector. The paper ends with major findings from the case study.
