China Manufacturing by Province
If you have ever been to China you will notice something special, and also quite logical, which is the culture of clustering. For example, if I want to buy clothes, go to any city and you will find the clothing stores all clustered together on one street or area if it’s a large city.
Manufacturing is somewhat similar, where certain cities and provinces specialize in a certain field or product. Shenzhen is a well known example, being highly regarded for it’s electronics industry which is clustered around Huaqiangbei.
