Abstract
The industry is the backbone of the city. Based on the industrial data of 35 central cities in China from 2005 to 2014, this paper studies the dominant industries of China's central cities by means of regional entropy analysis, and combines their industrial structures to provide guidance for the transformation of the central city into a global technology innovation center. In accordance with the experience of innovative cities in the United States, the conclusions are summed up as following: (1) Industries such as accommodation and catering services, transportation, storage and post services, finance intermediation, wholesale and retail trade, and other service industries in China's central cities have significant comparative advantages over other cities; (2) While China's central cities are vigorously developing the financial industry, accommodation and catering services, and other advantageous industries, they should also appropriately increase technological innovation in the industry sector; (3) Cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen should maintain the advantages of finance intermediation, information transmitting, software and information technology services and other service industries, and draw on the experience of the United States in constructing innovative cities to build global technology innovation centers.
