Per Capita Foreign Exchange Earnings, 2001 - Ranking of provinces

Source: China Statistical Yearbook, 2003, Table 18-8, p.697.
Note: Index was calculated and mapped with the RAPS-China tool. A value of 0 is equivalent to the national average; positive values indicate higher than average foreign exchange earnings, negative values indicate lower than average earnings. The map displays the ranking (not the values) of the provinces. Please note that we use per capita exchange earnings in US$ rather than absolute earnings.

Per capita foreign exchange earnings (primarily from tourism) are concentrated in Beijing and Shanghai - and to some extend in the coastal provinces and in Tibet. In the interior provinces of Hebei, Sichuan, Guizhou, Qinghai, Shanxi, Anhui, Gansu, Jianxi, Henai, and Nigxia per capita foreign exchange earnings, however, are minimal.
