Abstract: Evaluation index systems for both current development situation and development condition of high/new technology development zones in China are established in this paper. Using factor analysis method, the developments and locations of 52 high/new technology development nones in China were evaluated based on these evlauation index systems, and main factor scores were obtained. According to the factor scores, the development situations and development conditions of new/high technology development zones can be divided into 3 levels. The study shows that 7 high/new technology development zones, including Beijing, Shanghai, Shenyang, Tianjin, Wuhan, Xian and Shijiazhuang, have better locations and are well developed; on the other hand, 15 high/new technology zones, such as Baotou, Zhuhai, Baoding, Anshan, Wuxi, Nanchang, Zhuzhou, Foshan, Guilin, Nanning, Xiamen, Hainan, Mianyang, Baoji and Wulumuqi, should be degraded to the province level.

Key words: high/new technology development zones, factor analysis, comprehensive evaluation index
