Abstract: Industrial land supply, as an important governmental tool in China, has both economic and political connotations. Using the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei (BTH) region as a study area, this paper examines local governments’ behavior in supplying industrial land at different technological intensities and its contribution to economic growth from 2007 to 2018. The results are as follows: (1) As time passed, basic industrial land (BIL) supply became increasingly agglomerated, while technology-intensive industrial land (TIL) supply gradually dispersed. (2) A TIL supply corridor could be identified in the central part of the BTH region. (3) The contribution of TIL supply to local economic growth was significantly greater than that of BIL supply. (4) There existed a ‘zero-sum inter-regional linkage effect’ among neighboring counties, and TIL supply made a greater contribution than BIL supply in the zero-sum game. Finally, important implications for industrial land supply and regional development policies in the BTH region are proposed.
