Officially Recognizing Nan’an As IFI GRC – 2020
IFI is proud to honor Nan’an, China as the 2019-2021 IFI Global Resource City (IFI GRC).
Nan’an, a city of over 1.5 million people, is located in the prosperous Fujian province on the southeast coast of China. Known as the “World Stone Capital” and one of the world’s largest stone production, trade, processing and logistics centers, Nan’an is the first city to receive this unprecedented designation. At the beginning of the Maritime Silk Road, this prominent hub accounts for 60% of China’s production and 70% of its market share in the stone sector.
