BizBeat Ep.183: Changsha — A trillion-yuan GDP city




Changsha, a city in central China, marched into the trillion-yuan-GDP-cities club in 2017. Despite its landlocked location and few natural or inherited advantages, today the city has transformed itself with the support from pillar industries, including smart manufacturing, heavy construction machinery, media and entertainment and booming new consumer brands. At the same time, Changsha is also recognized as one of the cities with the highest happiness index in China. All these growths can be attributed to the economic support of the state and the unremitting efforts of the local government. In this episode of BizBeat, CGTN's Liu Zhaoqin breaks down the reasons why Changsha has achieved such amazing growth.
