China Productivity: Labor Productivity by Ownership Type
Sign In to Download
This report measures China’s industry productivity by ownership type, comparing state-owned enterprises to privately owned domestic firms, foreign-invested firms, and smaller firms for the period of 1995-2009. Because of China’s recent practice of government-supported capital expansion, ownership matters, with preferences given to state-owned enterprises. Thus measuring productivity by ownership type yields insights into the effects of policy on different firms in the same industry.
