Fujian is located on China's southeastern coast and is the closet point in mainland China to Taiwan. Its area is equivalent to the size of Greece and Fujian has the highest forestry cover in China. In terms of spending power total retail sales for province were roughly equivalent to Shanghai or Beijing.

Fujian has been a major beneficiary of foreign direct investment especially from overseas Fujianese and Taiwanese but now that it is no longer the only point of access to Taiwan it is losing out on investment to Jiangsu and Guangdong. Major industries include petrochemicals, machinery and electronics. Its tourism sector has seen very strong growth and continues to be one of the brighter spots in the Fujian economy.

Fujian's GDP grew 11.4% to RMB1.97 trillion in 2012. Its most recent 5-year plan calls for at least 55% of GDP growth to come from the industrial sector as well as having 50 companies with annual sales of RMB10 billion by 2015.
