The engine of economic growth comes from various factor inputs and technology that must be achievedthrough certain industrial structure. Given contributing factors in economic growth,different industrial structurewill lead to different outcomes. A reserch has been done on the impact of industrial structure on regional econom-ic growth since the reform and opening up. The results show that: The"pull effect"of tertiary sector on Tibet'seconomy is the largest,the second and primary industry takes second place. The first industry shows the highestefficiency and the largest development space,the contribution of value added in the second and third industry tothe GDP has restricted the contribution of the primary sector to the GDP. The research dynamically examinesthese effects further through the industrial structure and the contribution of different sectors in all regions to theeconomic growth and found that fluctuations instability is mainly from the secondary industry and the Nyingchiarea. The analysis above has important implications for understanding the evolution of the regional industrialstructure and formulate effective policy in optimizing the industrial structure and economic growth.
