Abstract: This paper aims to describe the regional development of high-tech industry through the spatial overlap of regional innovation capability and high-tech industrial zones. Mapping the regional distribution of high-tech industrial zones and innovation capability, the differentiation between them was displayed. The most developed high-tech industry provinces were Guangdong and Jiangsu, but the most innovation capability provincial units were Beijing and Shanghai. Using a dissimilarity analysis about compositions of innovation capability and high-tech industry, it indicated that the high-tech industry was promoted mainly by the techniques outside the areas other than the knowledge in the developed provinces. Generally, technique copies had more importance for the high-tech industry than original innovation in China.
