Manufacturing/Shanxi has knocked into shape a sophisticated manufacturing sector complete with coal mining equipment, crane excavators, railroad equipment, electrical equipment, and telecommunications equipment.
Electricity generation/Shifting away from traditional mode, Shanxi has emerged as a force to be reckoned with in China's electricity generation industry. With ultra-high-voltage, large-unit, and large-capacity power grid supporting North China Power Grid, Central China Power Grid, and East China Power Grid.
Metallurgical industry/In recent years, Shanxi has phased out outdated capacity and groomed a number of large conglomerates to be ready for international competition.
Chemical industry/Shanxi's major chemical companies have taken the initiative in promoting energy efficiency and reducing carbon emission, thus raising their comprehensive strength and global competitiveness and laying the foundation for transition.
Coal mining/National coal mining policy stipulates that large-scale coal mining businesses are to be encouraged; other coal mining provinces will in the next few years emulate the success of Shanxi in regrouping its coal mining industry.
