Abstract

In the context of service economy transformation, whether and how the collaborative agglomeration of producer services and manufacturing industry will affect the industrial development performance is attracting wide attention. Based on the theory of  industrial space correlation, this paper studies the impact mechanism of collaborative agglomeration of producer services and manufacturing industries on the upgrading of global value chain. Furthermore, based on the current situation and existing problems of industrial agglomeration in China, this paper puts forward some solutions to promote the upgrading of global value chains by optimizing the synergistic agglomeration of producer services and manufacturing industries.
