Indigenous Chinese firms are found to significantly benefit from their own export activities and R&D spillovers. Given some specific characteristics of China as a transition economy, OECD invested firms produce strong negative intra-industry spillovers on indigenous Chinese firms across regions but strong positive intra- and inter-industry spillovers within the same regions. Overseas Chinese firms from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan exert positive intra-industry productivity spillovers only. The robustness analysis suggests that different measures of FDI could lead to different results. Our findings have important implications for both business managers and policy makers.",
