Abstract

Since the inception of the open-door economic reform under Deng Xiaoping's initiative in 1978, the Chinese economy has in the past twenty years grown at an average annual rate of 9.4 per cent. China's path mirrors in many respects the experiences of Japan and South Korea in their rapid growth periods. A fundamental difference, however, is the fact that the rapid growth in China has been accompanied by increasing inflows of foreign direct investment (FDI). A striking feature of that FDI is the emphasis on technology transfer. This paper analyses the process of technology transfer in the context of learning by doing and summarizes its findings within a comparative developmental context.
