Abstract

Our purpose is to analyse the speed and contribution of the educational scientific and technological progress in the development of the primary forestry industry. In order to research the role of the educational scientific and technological progress in the development of the primary forestry industry more scientifically, the article employs the modified multi-factor two-level CES production function model, and the data from 31 provinces over 19 years (1994-2012), to measure and calculate the speed and contribution of the educational scientific and technological progress in the development of the primary forestry industry from the two dimensions, time and space. The speed of educational scientific and technological progress in the primary forestry industry was 2.8% from 1994 to 2012, and the contribution rate of educational scientific and technological progress to the development of the primary forestry industry was 49.6%. Through the measuring and calculating of different periods, it is found that there were big differences between different periods regarding to the contribution of the educational scientific and technological progress to the development of the primary forestry industry, and the contribution grew quickly in the last few years. Through the measuring and calculating of different areas, it is found that there were huge differences between different areas regarding to the contribution of the educational scientific and technological progress to the development of the primary forestry industry, due to the difference in nature, society and economic environment. Along with the development of the economy, the structure of the forestry industry needs important changes. The dominating status of the primary forestry industry in the forestry industry should be strengthened. The educational science and technology investment of the primary forestry industry should be boosted, to lead the development of the primary forestry industry onto a path relying on the progress of educational science and technology. In the process of making the development policy and investment policy on the primary forestry industry, it shall not impose uniformity in all cases. On the contrary, the policy shall vary according to the different situations; and it is noticed that the comparative advantages of different areas with different social economic and natural resources shall be exerted.
