Shaoxing in East China's Zhejiang province was recently ranked 24th on the 2022 list of the top 100 advanced manufacturing cities in China, according to a report.
The ranking was made by CCID Consulting, a firm affiliated with a think tank under the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The firm evaluated the advanced manufacturing sector of 293 prefecture-level cities nationwide based on innovation capacity, integrated development, economic strength, and brand quality.
Shenzhen topped the list, followed by Suzhou, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Qingdao, Changsha, Chengdu and Wuhan.
Jiangsu saw all its 13 cities make the list, more than any provincial areas in China. It was followed by Guangdong (11) and Zhejiang (8). Shaoxing overtook Jiaxing this year, coming in third in Zhejiang, only behind Hangzhou and Ningbo.
In 2021, the industrial enterprises above designated size in the top 100 cities on the list generated nearly 19 trillion yuan ($2.71 trillion) in added value, accounting for more than 60 percent of the nation's total.
