Abstract

In this paper, the production frontier approach is used to analyse enterprise efficiency in the Chinese iron and steel industry. The focus is on the relationship between productive efficiency and firm attributes. The findings in this paper demonstrate that enterprise efficiency in China is closely related to factors such as firm scale, ownership, vintage of capital, investment composition, credit condition, incentive system and economies of agglomeration.
