New Cities On The Block

While Beijing is still basking in the afterglow of the Olympics, Forbes and the Economist have been looking further afield, and have (added to the ranks of those who have [1]) ranked the business attractiveness of China’s bigger cities.

From Forbes (via China.org.cn):

From The Economist:

While the rankings differ in their detail, the clear message is that, just as the China story has moved on from being just about low-cost exports to being about added value and domestic consumption, those safe, comfortable havens of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou increasingly represent the tip of the (fast-growing) iceberg. And people are actually going to these far off places to do business – Dragonair now flies to 20 destinations [2]in the mainland, and smart new hotels are everywhere, whether it’s the Hilton in Hefei, the Sheraton in Shenyang, or…well, you get the idea.
