  • This paper defines the regional technology propensities to innovate on behalf of the difference of technology among regions, combines the spatial econometrics theory to test the spatial autocorrelation and spillover of technology among regions in chain. Based on the Moran’s I and improved knowledge production function we can learn that the positive spatial autocorrelation can improve the technology spillover. The results can provide theory foundation for planning spatial strategy program.
