Abstract: This paper investigates to what degree neighboring Chinese provinces were linked to each other in terms of economic growth, income levels, and foreign direct investment during the period 1994-2003. When looking at mainland China, we find that both the level of income and the rate of income growth in a province depend on developments in neighboring provinces. However, we find no evidence of any positive interdependence between growth in rich coastal provinces and their immediate inland neighbors. This suggests that there has been little harmonization in economic growth rates between these regions, and that the immediate hinterland of the coastal growth centers might be bypassed as China’s manufacturing sector is moving west.
