Guangdong GDP grows at 8.5% in 2013, Xinhua says

Guangdong’s economy grew 8.5 percent in 2013, becoming the first mainland province to exceed US$1 trillion in gross domestic product, Xinhua reported Wednesday, citing data from the Guangdong bureau of the National Development and Reform Commission. But while the Pearl River Delta has become a global manufacturing hub, there are still a dozen cities in the province deemed underdeveloped. As a whole, Guangdong is fourth-lowest in per capita GDP in China, the report said.
