February 15, 2019


Abstract : China's Yangtze River Delta region saw its GDP exceeding 21 trillion yuan in 2018, larger than that of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hubei development zone and Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

BEIJING, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) -- China's Yangtze River Delta region saw its GDP exceeding 21 trillion yuan in 2018, larger than that of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hubei development zone and Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Accounting for 23 percent of the national economy in 2018, the GDP of the Yangtze River Delta region was powered by development of cities in the region.

Among the 17 Chinese cities that saw their GDP surpassing one trillion yuan in 2018, six were located in the Yangtze River Delta region, including Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Wuxi and Ningbo, in comparison with three such cities in Guangdong and zero in Hubei.

The economic scale of Beijing-Tianjin-Hubei zone stood at 8.5 trillion yuan in 2018, the smallest among the three development areas.

The total GDP of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area remained unknown as Hong Kong and Macao have yet to release their GDP data for 2018. However, the GDP of Guangdong alone in 2018 has surpassed 9.7 trillion yuan.
