"Analysis of Beijing Investment in Science and Technology based on CGE Model"
by Hongfu, Ni, Shiyun Zhang, Yi Zheng and Ji Yuwei

In the search for a rapid, sustainable and lasting recovery from the economic crisis, science, technology and innovation are expected to play a driving role. But what are the implications for science and innovation policy? What steps is Beijing taking to boost their capabilities from science and technology input? What place is Beijing likely to occupy in the science, technology and innovation landscape? In this paper, in order to analyze the impact of Beijing’s investment in science and technology on regional economic development in Beijing, we build up a Beijing regional CGE model with an econometric module that links the investment in science and technology with technological progress. Results show that:1) Investment in science and technology will increase the GDP and promote economic structural adjustment in Beijing; 2) when the investment in science and technology in-crease of 1%, 2%, 3%, GDP will respectively increase 0.93, 1.22, 1.51 percentage points. From the perspective of resident’s income, when investment in science and technology increase 3%, the level of resident’s income will increase by 3.24 percentage points. Therefore, In view of the structure perspective of different sector’s investment in science and technology, different investment in sectors will lead to different impact of economic growth and structure, simulation results show that: when the priority of Beijing’s investment of different sector in science and technology is tertiary sectors, agricultural sector, industry sectors, it is conducive to economic growth and industry structure adjustment....
