Home » Zhongshan » Business


Zhongshan, together with Dongguan, Nanhai and Shunde, are dubbed as Four Little Tigers in Guangdong. The proximity of Zhongshan to Hong Kong and Macau is an advantage to its economic development, especially on the manufacturing industries.

In the 1980s, Zhongshan had a relatively developed State-Owned Enterprises (SOE) sector that was used to stimulate Township and Village Enterprises (TVE) development in the countryside. Currently, the SOE sector is much weaker and the economy is dominated by foreign investment and TVEs, and also by various specialized manufacturing towns. Each of these towns is specialized in making a particular product. Most of the towns are so successful that they earn a reputation as a leading manufacturer in their own pillar industries. Indeed, "One Industry in One Town" has become a unique economic feature in Zhongshan.

Guzhen Town for Lighting Fitting Products

Dubbed China Lighting Capital by China Light Industry Council and China Association of Lighting Industry. Guzhen Town is the largest production base of lighting fittings in China and one of the top four distributing centres of lighting fittings worldwide. The development of the lighting fittings industry in Guzhen can be tracked back to the late 1970s when products such as table lamps and emergency lamps produced by TVEs were sold in the western region of China. Nevertheless with the support of the government in terms of capital, land and policies, the first wave of development took place from the mid-1980s to early 1990s. Following the great success of the first China (Guzhen) International Lighting Fair held in 1999, Guzhen's lighting fittings industry has undergone an unprecedented growth in the years around the year of millennium.

A wide variety of lighting fittings products, ranging from crystal lamps, table lamps, wall lamps, ceiling lamps, palace lamps, pendant lamps and garden lamps to spotlights for stage lighting, are produced in Guzhen. These made-in Guzhen lighting fitting products are not only sold in domestic market, but also popular worldwide, with large markets in the U.S., the Middle East, South Africa, and Europe. Awarded ISO 9002 and other quality certificates issued by China, the U.S., the European Commission, and Canada, Guzhen's lighting fittings products are guaranteed with high quality and considered to be very competitive at home and overseas. Nevertheless, further development of Guzhen's lighting fitting industry, to a very large extent, depends on a sizeable number of creative, innovative professionals, and more and more new product designs, which are in short supply at present.
