: In order to change the growth strategy of the Chinese economy, from the recent production focused towards an innovation-oriented approach, the government is trying to foster innovation capacity building among companies operating in China. The implementation of the current Science and Technology Development Plan (2006-2020) has granted enterprises special support and subsidies to increase their innovative capacity. Yet, due to specific ownership forms of firms in China the government aid varies tremendously between the various ownership types. Based on their registration status enterprise types can be classified as state-owned (SOE), collective-owned (COE), joint-operated enterprises (JOE), private-owned (POE), and foreign-owned enterprises (FOE) as well as foreign joint ventures (FJV). These specific company forms are exposed to different political and regulatory conditions and can be further divided into three main dichotomies: private vs. public, domestic vs. foreign, and single vs. joint-operated enterprises. The arising particular circumstances for these companies as well as for the three dichotomies in China need to be investigated in more depth. Hence, this paper pursues three goals: (1) to derive a classification of the diverse ownership structure in China. (2) Furthermore, to describe the unique basic parameters of each ownership type. (3) Conducting a negative binominal regressionempirical analysis based on the data of the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics (2001-2009) in order to identify the innovative performance of the three main ownership dichotomies.
