China

This is a cool list that compares China’s provinces and municipalities with countries around the world in terms of the size of their economies. For instance, China’s 2nd largest provincial economy Jiangsu (Guangdong is the largest) matches up with Turkey at US$620 bil. to US$614 bil., while the poorest province Tibet matches up with Papual New Guinea. However while it’s cool to think that each province in China has a larger economy than several countries, California¬† by itself has the world’s 8th largest economy. And tiny Hong Kong, with a population of just 7 million has a GDP of US$226.5 billion.
