China Manufacturing by Province

map of China

 

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.
