Brief introduction to Zhejiang
Host to the G20 summit in 2016, last year Zhejiang ranked 4th in terms of provincial GDP with an economy equivalent to that of Austria. With 90% of that economy privately owned, the province ranked 3rd behind Shanghai and Beijing in terms of disposable income per capita, and was 2nd in terms of the number of incorporated listed companies (2015)
Pillar sectors in the province are: light textiles, machinery, building materials, chemicals, ICT and medical devices which is why Zhejiang companies are looking to EU for investment collaboration. New and rapidly growing sectors include e-commerce (Alibaba Group is based in provincial capital, Hangzhou) and creative (second largest film and television making region in China).
