On industrial spatiality Transfer of China:Based on quantitative analysisAuthor(s): Guo Li Bin, Yang Jie
In recent years, China has the tendency of labor-intensive industries especially the processing trade industry transferring to mid-western areas. The main provinces to undertake the transfer of processing trade industry are Henan, Hubei in middle areas and Sichuan, Chongqing in western areas, and these regions were also traditional labor export areas. This article focusing on the shortage of labor in labor-intensive enterprises in coastal cities andmassive transfer of processing trade enterprises to inland, explored the root causes of such phenomena by comparing the statistics of two typical cities: Chongqing and Guangdong. The comparison result shows that Chongqing has more attraction to labors. Nowadays Chongqing is in possession of considerable development and is taking advantages over coastal cities. Long from now on, the inland transfer of surplus labor of countryside will direct to central cities instead of traditional coastal cities.
