Solid Industrial Foundation


Foshan bears solid industrial foundation. In 2004, its gross industrial output value amounted to 405.896 billion yuan (USD 49.1 billion), up by 23.1% over the previous year.

After many years of growth, Foshan has developed strong industrial acceptance and supporting ability. Currently, two industry clusters have taken shape – a leading industry cluster with electric appliances, electronics, plastics, textile, ceramics, building materials,machinery and other industries as the mainstay as well as a high and new technology industry cluster assembling industries like electronic information, green and intelligent household appliances, digital optics, optical and electronic integration, auto parts, environmental protection equipment, biopharmaceutical project, new materials and etc.


The industry system of Foshan is soundly supported. A large number of small and medium-sized supporting enterprises gather around the leading industries and key enterprises of designated scale, forming large groups of upstream and downstream industry clusters with strong supporting ability. At the same time, Foshan, being the main production and trading base of steel, aluminum alloy and plastic products, is able to ensure that raw materials for production can be acquired at relatively low cost.
