We plan to visit four cities in China. Shanghai is the major financial center, is highly sophisticated and is the showcase for modern China. Shenzhen is a Special Economic Zone that has exploded in 30 years to become the #4 City in China in GDP terms with a population that equates to London. It is famous for manufacturing, including most of the iPhone production, and has a stock exchange. Guangdong province is the region that produces much of the exports that we see come from China. One city, Guangzhou has exports comparable to Vietnam. Dongguan is a major manufacturing center for exported goods. It comprises hundreds of thousands of SMEs. Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of China and operates under the ‘one country two systems model’. Its economy contains a myriad of service-based companies that specialize in re-exporting Chinese exports.
