Abstract

The township industry in Shanghai suburbs has undergone a rapid development in the past few years. Aimed at studying the spatial law of the township industry in Shanghai suburbs, three kinds of indexes including distribution density, economic benefit, and regional structure are selected and analysed using correlation analysis method. There are 12 indexes in total. It is found that the locational variation of the township industry in Shanghai suburbs conforms to the following distribution equation: {fx133-1}

The above equation has been more and more conforming to the real distribution of the township industry. It is obvious that decreasing trend from inner suburban districts to outer suburban districts is an important character of the locational variation of the township industry of Shanghai suburbs. The fact is closely related with the radiation intensity of the urban economy and the locational superiority for the development of township industry. The regional strategies of the township industry of Shanghai suburbs are follows:
  1. 1)

    to link the urban and rural areas as a whole and make coordinated development;

     
  2. 2)

    to make use of the locational superiority of inner suburban districts, to speed up technology renovation, and to develop projects and products serving the industry of the central city;

     
  3. 3)

    to improve the investment environment of outer suburban districts and strengthen the attraction for the radiation of the urban economy so as to speed up the development of township industry.
