According to the statistics departments in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai, the 16 cities in the Yangtze River delta region have achieved a total GDP of 4.67 trillion yuan in 2007, accounting for 18.9% of the nation's total. The average growth rate reached 15.2%, 0.4 percentage point higher than in the previous year, the Wenhui Daily reported.

The Yangtze River delta region consists of three zones: Shanghai as its head, 8 cities in Jiangsu Province along the Yangtze River, and 7 cities in Zhejiang province along Hangzhou Bay as its reaches. As seen from the economic aggregate and growth rate in the delta region, Shanghai still plays a leading role: a single city with a GDP that surpasses 1 trillion yuan and accounts for 25.7% of the river delta's total economic aggregate.

The GDP of the 8 cities in Jiangsu accounted for 44% of the delta's total; while the 7 cities in Zhejiang accounted for 30.3%.
