Abstract

This paper analyses stochastic convergence across twenty-eight Chinese provinces over the period 1952–2008 using unit root tests that take into account structural breaks and non-linearities. The results suggest a significant degree of convergence in capital intensity, labour productivity and total factor productivity in China's provinces. However, the findings also reveal that provinces located in coastal areas of China have benefited from the economic reforms more than the central and western regions and have created small regional clusters.
