Abstract

What impact does foreign direct investment (FDI) have on indigenous technological efforts? Despite that the question is both academically interesting and practically important, systematic empirical studies are scarce. This study attempts to help fill this gap by conducting an empirical investigation of the effects of FDI on indigenous technological effort using a firm-level survey dataset in China.
