活动内容摘要:

This paper explores how the time-based characteristics of FDI, namely the pace and rhythm of FDI expansion, influence technological upgrading within and across cities. Using the panel data of 244 Chinese cities for the period from 2004 to 2011, our empirical results show that FDI spillovers have a positive effect on local technological upgrading in both local and neighbouring cities. Irregular FDI expansion negatively moderates FDI spillovers in the same city, but exhibits a positive effect on technological upgrading in neighbouring regions. Moreover, only rapid FDI expansion in neighbouring cities has a positive effect on local technological upgrading and can enhance its technological spillover effects across cities. Our empirical evidence provides implications for both the theoretical framework and policy making.
