Abstract

China is a large country with a vast territory. Its land area totals 9.6 million square kilometres, and by 2001 its population stood at 1.28 billion. For a combination of historical and present-day reasons, the development level varies greatly across the different regions of China. For example, in 2001, the gross domestic product (GDP) of Shanghai averaged 37,382 yuan per capita and that in Guizhou province was 2,895 yuan per capita. A difference of 13 times was seen between the two provinces. Therefore, in order to study China’s regional issues, it is necessary to divide China into a number of different regions.
