Essex International's 30 year partner experiences high growth in GDP

Xinhua is reporting that Jiangsu Province has reported growth of 7.8% in their GDP. The country has already announced to have surpassed 8.5 trillion yuan.

Jiangsu Province is Essex International's lond standing partner. We have managed a relationship between Essex and Jiangsu which has lasted for 30 years. Essex International now works alongside many provinces in China but our relationship with Jiangsu is of paramount importance to us and our China office is located in Jiangsu's capital, Nanjing. Essex International's links with the government in Jiangsu and access to businesses allows us to effectively and efficiently assist our clients.

Jiangsu is the China's second-largest contributor to the national GDP and is the country’s largest manufacturing province. In 2016 the growth was 6.7% and in 2015 it was 6.9%. This year the city of Wuxi's GDP has grown to over 1 trillion yuan, making Jiangsu the only Province in China to have 3 cities over contributing over 1 trillion yuan alongside Nanjing and Suzhou.

There are many drivers for the growth in Jiangsu, among them are expansions in the health and meditech industries and in smart technologies.

Businesses with products in these or any other categories with strong USPs of quality, safety and branding, should contact Essex International for a free consultation on if the market is right for your product.
