Located in northeast China, Liaoning is an important transportation hub, home to the port city of Dalian. The province's pillar industries include machinery and equipment, smelting and pressing of metals, food processing, and petrochemicals, and the province is an important production base of equipment and machinery manufacturing. Liaoning has almost a quarter of China's iron ore reserves and large deposits of crude oil, particularly in the abundant Liaohe Oilfield.

Dependence on heavy industry and the province's energy inefficiency are signs that Liaoning is still at the lower end of the value chain. To stimulate economic growth, the province aims to nurture the private sector and specifically help small and medium sized enterprises by raising funds from equity and debt markets.

Liaoning's GDP grew 9.5% to RMB2.48 trillion in 2012.
