Guangdong Free Trade Zone

Guangdong ranks first in GDP among Chinese provinces and is placed at field 2×1 on the G8x8 chess board. In 2015, its GDP of 7,281.3 billion CNY contributed 10.1 percent to the national total of China. In international comparison, this is more than the GDP of Indonesia and a bit less than Mexico.

The pilot free trade zone of Guangdong province, aiming at the promotion of foreign trade and investment, has been opened in 2015 with great enthusiasm. Their website at http://www.china-gdftz.gov.cn , however, has no “news” in English since June, 2016. You might think that enthusiasm has died down, but no! News in Chinese are updated almost daily. Seems that only the English language team has been on vacation…
