In view of the era of informatization which is developing at high speed worldwide, the importance of informatization for human society and national development is self-evident. The degree of informatization can be a measure of a nation or region’s modernization. The level of regional informatization has already become an important indicator for weighing regional competitiveness. The development of informatization and competitiveness are closely related.
This paper presents a proposed evaluation index system for China of informatization and competitiveness. On this basis, this paper analyses the correlation coefficient between informatization and competitiveness by using Pearson correlation coefficient, and establishes the simultaneous equation model based on panel data to get the effect degree between the two. This paper calculates the influence coefficient and the elasticity coefficient, analyzing the
degree of effect on competitiveness.
This paper analyzes the correlation and degree of effects between informatization and regional competitiveness. Based on this analysis, this paper puts forward policy suggestions to improve China’s regional competitiveness.
