This article investigates the impact that the real exchange rate appreciation in China has exerted on productivity growth since 1994. We remind the arguments explaining a positive or a negative impact of a real appreciation on efficiency and on technical progress. DEA Malmquist indices of productivity growth and of its two components are calculated for twenty-nine Chinese provinces. The econometric estimation shows that the appreciation of the real exchange rate had an unfavourable effect on technical progress but a favourable effect on efficiency growth, and these two effects offset each other partially to give a lesser negative effect on productivity growth.
