Guizhou, one of China's poorest provinces, relies heavily on agriculture and tourism to prop its economy. Guizhou is China's third largest grower of tobacco and home to Guizhou Tobacco, a well-known consumer brand. A magnet of investments, the province's significant coal reserves and power generation industry allow the export a large amount of produced energy to Guangdong and other provinces.

Poor infrastructure has limited the development of a manufacturing industry and hinders the tourism industry. As the province attempts to alleviate these shortcomings, a high speed rail line from Guiyang to Guangzhou and other projects meant to expand the province's transportation links with neighboring provinces are in the works, with hopes to spur economic growth.

Guizhou's GDP grew 13.6% to RMB680.2 billion in 2012.
