Strategically situated near Guangzhou and Shenzhen, Dongguan is positioned as the central axis of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA). While getting itself actively involved in the GBA urban cluster, Dongguan also hosts the population and industrial spillover from the surrounding first-tier cities.
Dongguan is an important industrial, logistics and distribution base in the GBA. Dongguan enjoys an extensive expressway network that connects it to other core cities in the GBA.
The tertiary and secondary industries are more developed in Dongguan. Key industries include machinery, textiles, furniture, electronics and food processing. SMEs operate a thriving import and export business in the city. Now playing an increasingly important role in Dongguan, high-tech industries are the core force driving Dongguan to achieve future development, a key factor in Dongguan’s transformation and upgrading, and an important “pillar” for Dongguan to gain a foothold in the GBA.
Prologis owns and operates logistics and distribution facilities in Dongguan.
