    Based on the world Input-output data, Chinese industrial enterprise data and customs data from 2000 to 2013, this paper examines the effect of producer service quality on export technology complexity and its transmission mechanism. The results show that improving the quality of producer service inputs can significantly increase the export technological complexity of manufacturing enterprises, which is consistent with the endogenous and robustness test. The heterogeneity study finds that the quality of producer services has a significant effect on the export technological complexity of capital-intensive and technology-intensive manufacturing enterprises, but has no significant effect on the export technological complexity of labor-intensive manufacturing enterprises. The quality of domestic-sourced producer services has a significant positive effect on the export technological complexity of manufacturing firms, while the effect of foreign-sourced producer services is not significant. From the perspective of influence mechanism, the improvement of enterprise R&D innovation level and export product diversity will strengthen the positive correlation between the quality of input producer services and enterprise export technology complexity.
