Guangdong is currently China’s most populated province, with a permanent population of 115 million in 2019. To achieve its new population goal, the province will need to have over one million people settle here, on average, for the next 15 years.

As of 2019, the most populated city in the province is Guangzhou (15.3 million), followed by Shenzhen (13.4 million).

According to the chart below, Guangdong ranks among the top 10 provinces and municipalities for crude birth rate (CBR), which is measured by the rate of births among a population of 1,000. CBR is used to calculate population growth and decline.

The provincial land and space plan shows that the population size will increase in the PRD and Guangdong’s coastal cities (i.e. Shanwei, Chaozhou, Maoming, etc.) while northern Guangdong cities such as Heyuan and Shaoguan will see their population decrease over the next 15 years.

In 2019, the Central Government released a development plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA), which is currently underway for developing the area into a ‘world-class city cluster’ that’s expected to play a role in China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

Each of the 11 cities in the GBA has been called on to bolster specific sectors of the economy, such as tech and international commerce. A boost in population size will help accelerate the country’s development in the GBA.
