Abstract: The fast rising of the competitiveness of and the competition from Chinese firms has produced profound impacts around the world. This fast rising is puzzling given the low institutional quality and the weak technology creation capability in China. This paper provides an explanation for the productivity growth of Chinese firms from a novel perspective. We take into account the notable quid pro quo FDI policy in China (which requires multinationals to transfer technology through forming joint-ventures in return for market access) and check the role of the ownership structure of FDI in international technology diffusion to Chinese firms. We find that the presence of China-foreign joint ventures (JVs) is associated with significantly positive technology diffusion effects, while the presence of wholly-foreign-owned firms (WFOs) is associated with significantly negative market competition effects. These impacts are heterogeneous, robust to different tests. As for the mechanism, JVs seem bringing better technology to China and also easier technology access to Chinese firms than WFOs.
