Found on the southern coast of Guangdong province, Zhuhai was one of the first special economic zones. Industrial development in Zhuhai is focused on five new high-tech and heavy industries: electronics, computer software, biotechnology and pharmacy, machinery and equipment, and petrochemical industries. Zhuhai is an attractive destination for foreign capital and investment, due to a combination of its location, infrastructure, and port. Several foreign enterprises, including ExxonMobil, British Petroleum, Siemens, Carrefour and Matsushita, have projects in the city.

Despite this, Zhuhai is headed for an increasing amount of activity in the tertiary sector, due in part to growing integration with Hong Kong and Macau. China National Offshore Oil Cooperation has signed a RMB20 billion  deal to construct a gas terminal and deep water engineering equipment manufacturing base.

Zhuhai's GDP grew 7% RMB150.4 billion in 2012.
