Abstract

We test the determinants of low intra-industrial technology spillovers of foreign direct investment in China’s manufacturing industries with the quantile regression method. Greater technology gap, fewer state-owned enterprises and large-and-medium-size enterprises, and greater industrial clustering can stimulate intra-industrial technology spillovers.
