Harmonious Development of Coastal Ports and Port City Manufacturing Technology Economy in China
This paper introduces the Granger causality test to the analysis of the relationship between coastal ports and port cities manufacturing technology economy in China, verifying the role of coastal ports in promoting the port city economy not having yet been full. The development of Chinese coastal ports efficiency since 2000 to 2009 is analyzed through Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), which can be concluded that the technical efficiency reached low in the decade. Especially after 2004 most of the coastal ports were inefficient, and most of the inefficiency, which increased in the size, came from pure technical and scale inefficiency. On this basis, this paper analyzes the problems of the present port construction in China, and puts forward the countermeasures of its harmonious development.
