When it comes to China’s first-tier cities, four words immediately come to mind: North, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.These four cities have become synonymous with big cities due to their developed economy and high cost of living. They are also the first-tier cities in people’s minds.And when a city is growing strongly, it is often considered the fifth city to join the ranks of first-tier cities, but according to the latest official news, there are actually 18 first-tier cities in China.Besides the “old first-tier cities” in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, what are the 14 new first-tier cities?Do you have a hometown?Watch it together!Previously, the United Nations Economic and Social Council released the list of China’s top 100 cities in 2022, a total of 18 cities were classified as first-tier cities, according to the usual order of the north, guangzhou and Shenzhen.The other 14 cities are also classified as first-tier cities, in order of the list: Wuhan, Nanjing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Hangzhou, Tianjin, Suzhou, Changsha, Qingdao, Xi ‘an, Zhengzhou, Ningbo, Wuxi and Dalian.Many friends are surprised that Wuhan ranks the fifth among the new first-tier cities, but in fact the ranking result is also reasonable. Wuhan has been a powerful city for a long time. Among many provincial capitals, Wuhan’s economic development actually ranks among the top.When the epidemic broke out in 2019, Wuhan was under the biggest pressure of epidemic prevention in China. Now, after only two or three years of recovery and development, Wuhan has become the fifth city in China, which is really impressive.Another notable city is Nanjing.Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu province, has long been eclipsed by its neighbor Suzhou, but now it has finally overtaken suzhou in the rankings.The UN’s latest ranking of Chinese cities puts Suzhou at 11th, not in the top 10, but nanjing, somewhat surprisingly, is the sixth city in the country.Why do you say that?As the capital city of economically developed Jiangsu Province, Nanjing’s GDP, permanent population and per capita income are not particularly outstanding, so what on earth makes Nanjing the sixth city in China?To answer this question, we can take a look at Wuhan. Wuhan ranks fifth on the list. Let’s see what is special about Wuhan.As the capital city of Hubei Province, Wuhan is home to two 985 universities and seven 211 universities. There is no doubt that Wuhan has the most high-quality educational resources in the whole Hubei province.Nanjing also has 8 211 and 2 985.In addition, in addition to enjoying rich quality education resources, Nanjing also has the most famous hospitals in Jiangsu Province, such as Drum Tower Hospital, Jiangsu Provincial People’s Hospital and so on.Comparing with Wuhan, Nanjing also possesses the highest quality science, education, culture and health resources in the whole province. Therefore, Nanjing has become the sixth city in China, which is also the cause.Further thinking, suzhou and Wuxi, as non-provincial capital cities, ranked high, which also shows that these two cities have a great momentum of development.In terms of provinces, jiangsu has three cities on the list of first-tier cities, which is also the province with the most first-tier cities in China.In the future, will jiangsu province have more cities on the list and become China’s first-tier cities?Let’s wait and see!
