Abstract

This thesis aims to offer new insights into the understanding of productivity performance, environmental efficiency and economic
growth in China. It addresses four major issues, namely, i) the role of regional and zonal factors in the convergence of labour
productivity in China, ii) total factor productivity (TFP) growth and its determinants in China's three economic sectors, iii)
environmental efficiency and its distribution dynamics in Chinese cities and iv) the impact of China's urban economic growth on
national growth. Overall, the findings in this thesis provide important implications for policy makers.
