Chapter Summary

This chapter is based on the earliest of some studies of local Chinese industries which were commenced in Yenching University a year ago. The chapter studies as closely as possible the changes which the economic organizations are undergoing under the impact of modern forces. The province of Hopei does not occupy a very commanding place in pottery production in China. In presenting this incomplete sketch of the pottery industry in this province, it is the desire to call attention to the need that exists for improving the industry with which above all China's name is associated. It would be a great pity if China allowed the most famous of her manufactures for the production of which nature has provided abundant resources, to suffer a fate similar to that of the tea industry, which has declined relatively to other countries, because of the lack of scientific measures.

Keywords: Chinese industries; economic organizations; Hopei; pottery production; tea industry
