Chinese city plans to become world's white goods capital

Published by Steve Coleman on November 22, 2011

The words "major appliances" and "Made in China" may point to one particular Chinese city in the next half decade.

The Chinese government plans to turn the city of Hefei into the world's largest white goods manufacturing centre in the next five years.

Predictions say the city will produce 100 million units of refrigerators, washing machines and air conditioners once the expansion plans are completed. The city currently produces $29.3 billion worth of goods annually and is growing at 30 per cent a year.

In 2010, the city produced 37 million refrigerators, washing machines and air conditioners worth $11.2 billion.
