If Ningbo were a country it would be rated as the 53rd largest economy in the world, on a par with New Zealand, and be classified as ‘high income’ by the World Bank. It is the world’s largest cargo port and the 3rd biggest container port. Ningbo is also a centre of entrepreneurial private businesses and manufacturing industry, for example automotive components.
