This chapter examines the convergence process in China by taking into account spatial interactions. It shows that there has been a dramatic increase in the spatial dependence of China's per capita GDP in the last twenty years. The space thus plays an important role, in the sense that economic conditions of one province affect growths of its neighbours. Results indicate that regional distribution of GDP has gone from one of convergence to stratification, and from stratification to polarization.

Keywords:   stratification, polarization, spatial effects, GDP
