Suzhou – 100 kilometers to the west of Shanghai, the most important economic region for the international trade in goods with China.

The westernized economic metropolis and harbor city has over 20 million inhabitants including the surrounding region. It is situated close to the mouth of the Yangtze Kiang and represents a gateway to the booming Chinese market. According to experts, this economic growth, which is by far the greatest in the world, applies to practically all sectors in China.

For instance, the demand for cars has more than doubled in the past few years. China is regarded as the fastest-growing automobile market in the world with the prospect of double-digit growth rates. Last year, economic growth was around nine percent.

While some are still gaining experience and surveying development opportunities in the Middle Kingdom, covering 9.57 million square kilometers, others are already operating there in production plants firmly anchored in the market.

GF Automotive has also been active in China for several years now. Initially with a foundry in Zhangjiagang and more recently with a new plant in the Suzhou industrial park.
