Based on the definition of the economic development given by many economists, the economic
development is affected by several economic indicators essentially by the degree of innovation,
the research and development activities also by the foreign direct investment and by the human
capital education level.
Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyses the link between the innovation and economic
growth in the Chinese economy. To verify this link, we adopt a certain strategy, by using a single
country analysis based on multiple regression models. In order to estimate the innovation degree,
we have used various variables as a proxy such as the number of patents, the number of
trademarks and the research and development expenditures. The results of this study, provide a
positive linkage between the two indicators, the economic growth, and innovation degree.
