Anhui

Anhui (安徽; Ān​huī​) is a province in the southern central region of China. Historically, it is a relatively poor agricultural province, and over the past few decades it has been one of the main suppliers of cheap migrant labour to more prosperous coastal provinces, especially in nearby East China. Recently, though, Anhui itself has been developing quite a bit of modern industry.
