The tier one Chinese cities are Beijing, Shanghai, and Guanzhou. These were the first to be opened up to competitive economic development by the Chinese government, and so are the most populous, affluent and competitive cities in the country. Strategies for economic development then began to spread to other cities in waves, creating the second, third, and fourth tiers.
