Guifang He, Yongyong Tao


In order to promote industrial structure optimization of the Pearl River-Xijiang River Economic Belt (PR-XREB), the stage, direction and rate of the industrial transformation and upgrading of the PR-XREB from 2010 to 2019 were analyzed. The results showed that the PR-XREB was in the mid-prophase stage of industrialization, the transformation and upgrading of industrial structure was in a slow state. Both of the primary and secondary industry lags behind and the later even more serious. There was unbalance development among the PR-XREB. However, the upgrading rate of industrial structure in Guangdong 4 cities is obviously faster than that of 7 cities in Guangxi, and this economic development imbalance have a worse trend.
