DG is Now Fifth Best in China

Dongguan Is the New Number Five

Baidu Maps recently released their China Urban Research Report for the second quarter of 2017. Among China’s 60 major cities, Dongguan ranked fifth (attractiveness index: 8.104) for attracting non-locals to work and settle in the city. The top four are unsurprisingly Shenzhen, Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai.

This “population bonus” is a basic element of social economic operation and has been increasingly highlighted in recent years. Enhanced population resources show growth in urban development and attract more skilled workers to choose Dongguan as their new home.

Population influx to the big three in Guangdong alone accounted for more than 60% of all cities. Dongguan itself attracted 17.2% of the growth, slightly less than Shenzhen and Guangzhou.
