Abstract

Definitions are given of the formal and informal sectors of China. These two sectors are compared by enterprise size, range of manufacturers and regional patterns and the linkages with the formal sector and overseas. Collective industrial enterprises are briefly discussed, in particular, urban informal industries, large collectives in Guangzhou and small collectives in Shanghai.
