Abstract: We study the promoting effects of financial development on economic growth in China. We investigate the effects of developments in the banking, securities, and insurance sectors on the outputs of China's primary, secondary, and tertiary industries. Since China's provincial economic growth shows significant spatial dependence, we construct cross-sectional spatial regression models to study effects year by year, and panel spatial regression models to study overall effects. Empirical results show that the banking and insurance sectors provide significant promoting effects on economic growth; the promoting effect of the securities sector is uncertain.
