4 percentage points. Excluding investors from Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan, FIEs still account for around 30 per cent of China’s GDP growth. Fleisher, Li, and Zhao (2010) find that FDI had a much larger effect on TFP growth before 1994 than after, and they attribute this to the encouragement and increasing success of private firms. After 1994, they find a much smaller, even insignificant, economic impact of FDI. They conjecture that the drop in the impact of FDI after 1994 can be attributed in part to the encouragement of the non-state sector.

Within TFP, there is a need to separate the one-off productivity gains due to factor reallocation from the efficiency-driven improvements. By the 2000s, labour reallocation accounted for 8–15 per cent of TFP gains but with higher contributions in the decades before. It is similar for capital and could explain the decline by about one-third in TFP after the mid-1990s. Thus, these calculations imply that around 8 per cent of China’s GDP growth is driven by factor 16 Introduction reallocation, leaving about 7–21 per cent that is explained by efficiency gains driven not by one-off but sustained productivity improvements.
