In recent years, Chinese professionals and young graduates are flowing into “new first-tier” or second-tier cities such as Chengdu, Chongqing and Hangzhou; high-tech companies have been proliferating in 35 major cities besides Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou; manufacturing industries have been relocated from first-tier cities to their neighbouring areas...The areas beyond the biggest and most developed cities are undergoing rapid expansion with vast improvements in infrastructure, transportation, education, employment and standards of living, thus playing a significant role in China’s economic transformation. How can EU SMEs benefit from China's diverse zones and regions outside tier-one cities?
