Transcript of Eastern Chinese Migration

By Morgan Reich Eastern Chinese Migration The Eastern migration of China is important because it led to China becoming one of the world's largest manufacturers. China's eastward migration was interregional and internal because it was all within China. China's eastward migration was also voluntary because people migrated there for better job opportunities. Pull factors include more jobs, new industry, seeing the world, and escaping a controlling family. Traveling far, being away from families, poor living conditions, low wages, or non payment of wages are all intervening obstacles. When labor restrictions were lifted, migrants were rejected by the urban population. Urban workers still received better jobs. This migration follows most of the Gravity Model because: there were many long distance migrants moving to the industrial cities, most migrants came from rural areas and not urban, the rapidly growing cities were populated by migrants from rural areas, and migratory currents flow along certain well defined geographical channels. These eastern industrial cities were on or near the coast or coastal rivers allowing for favorable export shipping. Push factors include no jobs, no opportunities, stagnant economy, and a controlling family.

A family migrates together so that they can work together and be together. blog.lib.umn/edu/globerem/main/tobler.pdf
