The characteristics of
Chinese economic area are distinct, and the development status of the inter-provincial
high-tech industry is significantly different. As Chinese high-tech industry is
acting an increasingly important role in pushing the economic development, it
is necessary to evaluate the inter-provincial R&D innovation efficiency for
high-tech industry. This text, using the DEA Approach with Double Frontiers,
made comparison for the evaluation unit with the “optimized” and “worst”
decision-making unit respectively. Therefore it carried out measurement for the
inter-provincial optimistic efficiency and pessimistic efficiency for Chinese
high-tech industry, and suggested the comprehensive results with the geometric
average efficiency. The research results showed that there were great
differences among the R&D innovation efficiencies for Chinese high-tech
industry among 26 provinces and municipalities. There is no need for the high-tech
industry to blossom everywhere. It, based on the economic development and
efficiency status, should be strengthened in Beijing, Tianjin, Guangdong,
Chongqing and Jiangsu, etc.
