As the continuous development of reform and opening up policy, China hasenticed a huge amount of foreign direct investment which had played an importantrole in promoting our economic development. But, however, the problem is most ofthe foreign direct investments are located in the southeast coastal areas. Although thegovernments in central and western regions have implemented a series of preferentialpolicies to attract foreign investments, these regions still share very little proportion ofFDI. In order to explore the related reasons, this study analyzed the determinants oflocation choice of foreign direct investments based on the theories of regionalspecialization and agglomeration, by using the data of Zhejiang province.This paper first introduces the main factors that affect FDI location choice andthen discusses how and why specialization and agglomeration can affect FDI locationchoice. After that, this study analyzes the effort of regional specialization by using thedata of Zhejiang province and calculating some related indicators. In addition, byemploying the data of9cities in Zhejiang province, this study induces some variablesand uses an econometric model to examine the effort of agglomeration. The resultsshow that regional specialization may affect the location choice of FDI inmanufacturing industry and agglomeration plays a significant role in attracting FDI.In the last part of this study, some advices regarding solving the existed problemsin Zhejiang province are proposed. Besides, some advices and experiences fromZhejiang province which can shed some light on central and western regions are alsoprovided in this paper.
