On December 4, CCID Consulting, a leading Chinese think tank, released a report on Chinese districts’ overall competitiveness. It also announced a list of China’s top 100 districts in terms of overall competitiveness. Six districts in Hunan were included, one in Changde and the other five in Changsha: Changde’s Wuling was placed at 31st and Changsha’s Yuhua 17th, Furong 37th, Yuelu 65th, Kaifu 69th, and Tianxin 71st.
The report studied and assessed the overall competitiveness of 889 districts under the jurisdiction of prefecture-level cities in 27 provinces except Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, and Chongqing. The assessment was based on these districts’ comprehensive quality and efficiency, business environment, development potential, and people’s well-being as of November 2019.
Special urban planning areas including national economic and technological development zones and national high-tech industrial development zones were not included in the study.
