Title: Agglomeration and state-led innovation in a transitioning Chinese economy

Abstract: This presentation introduces a series of recent papers by Dr. Howell on the role of agglomeration on the process of firm innovation and the impact of state-led efforts to organize the spatial economy to promote technological related spillovers in China. In general, local spillovers contribute to patenting activity, new innovation sales, and productivity among Chinese firms, particularly in the context of rapid economic reforms. The effects vary depending on privately owned versus state-owned enterprises, highlighting the importance of firm ownership structure in leveraging external knowledge. The influence of place-based policies like industrial parks and zones on agglomeration and selection forces will be discussed, offering insights for policymakers in transitioning economies aiming to foster innovation and productivity through strategic spatial planning.
