The Sectoral Contributions of Industry and Agriculture
This chapter analyses the relative contributions made to growth by agriculture and industry. It shows that industry was the engine of growth in China during throughout the entire post‐1978 period; not a single one of China's provinces experienced industrial growth of less than 5% per annum. Furthermore, China's industrial sector experienced extensive structure change as traditional consumer‐oriented sub‐sectors revived and modern sub‐sectors such as pharmaceuticals and electronics emerged. Nevertheless, agriculture made an important contribution, especially in the early years of transition and in the poorest provinces.
