Based on the perspective of absorption of international technology transfer, this article empirically tests the impact of intellectual property protection and domestic technology transfer on regional technological progress by using the panel data of 29 provinces in China during 1997—2011. The results show that the level of actual intellectual property protection in each region is low, which fails to meet the minimum requirements of international technology licensing. Domestic technology transfer plays a fundamental role in the absorption of foreign technology transfer, and it contributes more than independent research and development. Import trade is an important channel to acquire international technology spillover, and FDI significantly promotes the technological progress in the central region.
