Four county-level areas in Ningbo have made the list of China's top 100 counties and county-level cities in terms of comprehensive strength in 2023, said a recent report.

According to the report, recently released by the China Small and Medium-sized Cities Development Index research team and the Guoxin Small and Medium-sized Cities Index Research Institute, Cixi secured the 6th position, followed closely by Yuyao at 12th place, Ninghai at 47th place, and Xiangshan at 53rd place.

The report also highlighted the inclusion of five districts administered by Ningbo on the list of top 100 districts in terms of comprehensive strength in 2023, with Yinzhou coming in at 5th, Haishu at 20th, Zhenhai at 44th, Jiangbei at 53rd, and Fenghua at 75th.

Additionally, Cixi has been recognized as the county-level city with the second highest investment potential in 2023, while Yinzhou ranked eighth among districts with the highest investment potential.

The rankings were made based on a comprehensive strength index system that evaluates the areas from five key perspectives: economic development, innovation-driven growth, ecological environment, people's well-being, and urban and rural governance. The combined contribution of the top 100 districts on the list accounts for 11.22 percent of the national total economic output.
