The fourth largest economy and the third largest exporter in China, Zhejiang Province leads all provinces in rankings of GDP per capita in both urban and rural areas. As a result of the provincial government's business-friendly policies, this region witnessed the success of thousands of small businesses. Compared to the rest of China, people in Zhejiang are the most entrepreneurial, which has also aided the province in achieving a small urban to rural income gap.

An important maker of electronics and other equipment, Zhejiang's manufacturers had a significant competitive advantage: cheap prices, low labor costs and resource costs and high volumes. However, as other provinces become cheaper, Zhejiang's growth is shrinking and structural reform is needed. Additionally, high incomes and limited investment choices have resulted in high property costs.

Zhejiang's GDP grew 8% to RMB3.46 trillion in 2012.
