Key Industries for Future Growth

  • Ashok Sethi
Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter, I look at certain specific industries which have already reached an exceptional stature in China, and are likely to continue to grow further and offer significant opportunities to companies. The number of such industries is large and it is overambitious to try a comprehensive listing of such industries. The choice is definitely biased by my own perspective, though I have attempted to be as objective as possible. Additionally, I have tried to focus on those industries, for which important factors fueling the growth include some specific features of the Chinese economy or distinctive consumer characteristics.
