ABSTRACT
Statistical data related to industrial enterprises from 2011 to 2016 in Fujian Province of China show that the ecological efficiency of industrial enterprises has some temporal and spatial distribution characteristics. In general, ecological efficiency was increasing year by year with great differences within the regions, and the difference increase with time. The efficiency in the eastern region was higher than that in other areas. Based on considering spatial weights and combing the spatial econometric model, this paper studied the influencing factors of ecological efficiency of industrial enterprises, and draws conclusions that population density, per-capita GDP, the proportion of industrial output value and the comprehensive utilization rate of industrial solid waste have a significant positive impact on the ecological efficiency of industrial enterprises. In addition, the ratio of value of import and export goods to GDP and the ratio of expenditure on R&D to general public expenditures have a significant negative impact on the ecological efficiency of industrial enterprises, then put forward some relevant countermeasures and suggestions.
