It explore a wide range of associated issues, taking Guangzhou, one of the leading mega-city in Southern China as a case study, including the characteristics of the growth of producer services and how this is related to China’s economic and urban transition, the distribution of these services in Guangzhou. The text is rich with statistical data and diagrams, providing original contributions and a cutting edge overview. This publication will be of interest to upper-level undergraduates, postgraduates, and researchers interested in China, Urban Studies and Economic Development.
