About the Free Trial Class


  • The primary objective of the course is to develop an understanding of the different provinces of China, their economies, development trends, and the unique factors they possess.
  • This course will provide the students with an introduction to the administrative and economic regions of China, a macroeconomic overview of each province, and a commentary on the key development trends.


  • Overview of regional divisions
  • Macro Economic Data
  • Key Economic Regions and Cities
  • A to Z regional economic data

Course Highlights:

  • The People’s Republic of China is the second-largest economy in the world and the largest in Asia, having overtaken Japan in terms of gross domestic product in 2010.
  • The first reforms and opening up to foreign investment occurred in the late 1970s which allowed China to embark on a path of economic growth, culminating in China joining the World Trade Organization as a member in December 2001.
  • From this date, China has gradually become the main player in the international markets in terms of the volume of goods traded.
  • The opening of China to foreign investment has also allowed the entry of new capital through foreign investors, initially to exploit the enormous production capacity of the country and subsequently to be present in the domestic market and to satisfy the growing internal demand. This trend has initiated structural changes in the Chinese economy, triggering a process of transformation from a low-cost global production center to a destination market for goods and services.
  • In addition, due to social and tax reforms, many investors have begun to prefer direct investment in Mainland China, without using an investment vehicle in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
