Abstract:The empirical studies, focused on four Chinese metropolitan regions, revealed that the techniques developed in this research can provide some very useful tools for researchers, analysts, and planners in the ongoing demands to understand and interpret the significant differences and similarities in regional economic structures. The results revealed that key sectors are not always as important as some researchers have claimed. The economic landscapes provide a new way of presenting economic structure and suggested that the importance of non-manufacturing industries should be emphasized, especially for regions that experience rapid economic growth. The results also shed light on the nature and extent of manufacturing-non-manufacturing linkages in some illuminating ways that not have been presented to date in a comparative study.
