Analysis on the Development of Producer Services in China—Based on Intermediate Demand of Three Industries


From the intermediate demand perspective of the industry, agriculture and services, this paper analyzes the problems on the development of producer services in China and gives some related causes. To accelerate the development of producer services in an even better fashion, we think the following measures should be taken: developing the high-end manufacturing and promoting the interaction between manufacturing and producer services; attaching equal importance to imported technology and independent innovation; improving the promotion and training for agricultural technology and optimizing agriculture production structure; developing the modern service industry; enhancing the supplying quality of producer services.
