In 1975-1985, the industry made up only 9.6 percent of the economic structure. The main products were ceramics and lacquer. State-owned enterprises were inefficient, other economic sectors were underdeveloped. In the period of transformation (1986-1990) from a centrally planned to the market economy, many enterprises could not stand the test and disband. However, with the encouragement of the province, hundreds of private enterprises came into being. Industrial production maintained a growth rate of 8 percent a year and in 1990 accounted for 13 percent of the economic structure.
