Balance in Coastal and Inland Industrial Development in the People's Republic of China,

Pagination or Media Count:
Many countries in various stages of development contain regions less developed than others within the same country. The coastal regions were relatively more industrially developed in the early 1950s than the inland areas and Chinese planners set out to rectify this unequal distribution of industry. The 1950s saw substantial change, but recent data indicate that from 1957 to the 1970s there was little relative change. The report explores conditions and the scanty data of the 1970s in order to suggest some likely hypotheses.
