Pearl River Delta - From World Factory to Global Innovator
The Pearl River Delta (PRD) is China's economic powerhouse. From a largely rural area in southern China, it has been transformed into a global factory in less than four decades; it is now a modern, industrialised metropolitan area with over 60 millions inhabitants.
The Pearl River Delta region includes the nine major cities of Guangdong: Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Foshan, Dongguan, Huizhou, Zhongshan, Jiangmen, Zhuhai and Zhaoqing. The region is known for its pioneering role in China's economic reform and for its rise to become a leading global manufacturing base.
