This paper collects the data of 20 cities’ regional gross domestic product (GDP) in Guangdong from 1979 to 2013 as basic to measure the spatial correlation of regional economic growth between cities by establishing the VAR models and depicts the characteristics of spatial correlation of regional economic growth in Guangdong through the Analytic Network Process. The results show that: (1) There exist 160 spatial correlation relationships between cities and the spatial correlation is stability and multiple. After modularization, 20 cities can be divided into four modules--the bidirectional spillover module, net spillover module, main beneficial module and net beneficial module. The spillover network structure of economic growth has obvious flattening feature. (2) Guangzhou and Shenzhen are the engines of the spatial spillover of economic growth in Guangdong. Shanwei and Shaoguan are the main sources of the growth energy. (3) The Pearl River Delta influences the spatial spillover of regional economic growth in peripheral areas prominently. Within the Pearl River Delta, Dongguan is the main beneficiary in this spillover effect. And Zhaoqing belongs to the net beneficial module, so fails to play a role of transferring the growth energy to other cities. (4) The differences of industrial structure between cities will have a negative effect on spatial correlation. And the differences in the degree of openness between cities will promote the spillover effect of regional economic growth significantly.
