Many “cities of the second row” possess already a good infrastructure, international airports as well as interesting investment and business opportunities like the metropolitan cities Beijing, Shanghai, Canton and Shenzhen, but often in a yet lower level. These include among others, Chengdu, Chongqing and Shenyang, that are characterized by a relatively progressed internationalization and an increasing number of foreign investments. They benefit from governmental recovery packages and are characterized by fast growth. Many of these cities are compared with the coast attractive as investment locations, as they have lower costs for rent, electricity and labor. Often the local authorities are less familiar with the contact to international companies in the everyday business, which can lead to problems. For consideration to investments in less centrally located regions of China, the conditions of the potential locations have to be carefully examined. Since efforts of the Chinese government are to better distribute wealth in the country, also here an increase of the wage level and the living costs can be expected in the medium-term. In short, growth potential exists, but often the infrastructure (among others international schools and hospitals) is not developed that much and the economic development not as advanced as in Beijing, Shanghai or Canton. Therefore, the direct market entry is often not recommended in the “cities of the second and mainly of the third and fourth row”. These locations are rather suited as additional locations. They are mainly attracting the attention of companies already based in Beijing or Shanghai that want to expand further.
