Abstract

Using panel data from Chinese Industrial Surveys of Medium-sized and Large Firms for 2000-06, we show that while there is evidence of positive technological spillovers from FDI, such spillovers are very unevenly distributed. For some industries, there are positive spillovers from FDI presence in the same industry and province, but for others spillovers are negative. There are positive spillovers from FDI presence in upstream and downstream industries, but such spillovers mostly occur in private firms. There are more spillovers from foreign capital that comes from outside the greater China area.
