A shift-share model is employed to analyse the interregional productivity variations in Chinese manufacturing and mining industry. Our empirical results show that sector productivity difference is huge; surprisingly, the most productive coastal regions are found to be specialized in low-productive sectors; the inland provinces suffer a uniform productivity lag, which suggests policies geared to increase regional productivity, such as infrastructures and human capital, are crucial to close the productivity gap between the inland and the costal.
