well, Ipoh is no longer super rich but middle class.....because just "alluvial tin" is not enough....|
but you have many of those rich people now in Hong Kong....
and they have invested in real estate, banks.....
back in Ipoh, we now have a small screen TV factory, PCB board, medical product industrial park, ...including the Vit. E extraction facilities.....
a small city "stunted" at 600,000 population due to location....
I think i just had a look in the map....and saw that Anhui, Hunan, Hubei, Guangxi is in high lands.......
seems likely, the local authorities in these regions could spend some time visiting Bavaria, Austria, Switzerland....region which are also similarly contraint...
(1) Precision metal working
(2) Mechanical watch making
(3) Medical ingredients manufacturing
(4) Personal banking
(5) Light arms manufacturing
(6) Tourism....cool, fresh air...mountain holiday..chalets, iceboarding......
yet..those nations have large populations.....only probably 40-50 million in Bavaria....Austria....and Switzerland....heard of Nestle, Swiss banks, German precision machineries...
and we could have pulp and timber processing plants...
and recreate a great lifestyles.....
not necessarily high incomes..but high quality lifestyles with lower incomes...????
