Located in north eastern China, Jilin province is abundant in natural resources, with one of the top five mineral reserves in China, the country's largest reserves of oil shale, and China's largest base of commercial grain. Additionally, Jilin is famed for a pharmaceutical industry derived from the province’s vast resources of rare Chinese medicines.

While agriculture still counts as one of Jilin's largest industries, since the reforms of the 1980s, an ever-expanding secondary and tertiary sector has driven economic growth. A significant automobile industry as well as important petroleum and chemical industries continue to underpin the economy, and future sights are set on nurturing a high-tech industry centered about photoelectron products. Ongoing reforms to modernize traditional heavy industries, increase the efficiency of state owned enterprises, and develop foreign trade aim to widen the province’s economic achievements.

Jilin's GDP grew 12% to RMB1.19 trillion in 2012.
