ABSTRACT
The relationship between the intensity of FDI and Chinese labor productivity is studied using industry and province specific data. In low technology industries, the data suggest a curvilinear, "inverted-U," relationship. Unlike previous research, this paper supports a curvilinear relationship for truly international FDI, not just investments from within Greater China.
