Formatted abstract
This thesis focuses its attention predominantly on the contemporary industrial policy of Shanghai. There are various models of industrial policy that can be used to transform and modernise economies, in addition to augmenting economic growth and economic efficiency. The findings of this thesis indicate that since 1990, Shanghai has adopted, and adhered to, a model of structuralist industrial policy. It is this model which has been the central economy policy of Shanghai, and the force behind its recent rapid economic development. The policy has involved the application of instruments and incentives which have significantly influenced industrial orientation towards strategic hi-tech and export potential industries. As a result of the policy tools, Shanghai has attained strong industrial growth and a significant amount of global attention. Vl11
