This study develops a two-dimension and multi-variable approach to investigate the competitiveness and dynamics of Chinese industries (products groups). The result reveals the orderly transformation of competitiveness across 97 Chinese industries. In order to determine the position of China’s industries in the world market, we also investigate the competitiveness of the EU-15’s industries using the same approach. The orderly transformation of competitiveness of Chinese industries is found to follow the current competitiveness pattern of the EU-15, which is in line with the orderly transfer of economic activities between developing and developed countries as predicted by theoretical models.
