Wenzhou, a southeastern coastal city in China's Zhejiang Province, is home to one of the most dynamic private economies in the country, and the manufacturing hub for electric, apparel and footwear, auto and motor accessories, and pump valve products. With the GDP hitting 461.98 billion RMB last year, and the annual growth rate of 6.6%, 7.7%, 7.2% and 8.3% during 2012 to 2015, the city's economy is on the rise.
Wenzhou is also famous for its unique status as a testing ground for China's financial reforms.
In 2012, China's first Comprehensive Pilot Financial Reform Zone was set up in the city, and in late 2015, the city was chosen to be one of the six pilot cities for QDII2 (Qualified Domestic Individual Investor).
