Among them, fixed-asset investment in the industrial sector accounted for 50 percent. According to data from the Shandong Provincial Bureau of Statistics, the province's industrial investment reached 2.63 trillion yuan in 2016, up 13.6 percent from a year earlier.

East China's Jiangsu province, with a fixed-asset investment of 4.94 trillion yuan, ranked second, followed by Henan province (3.98 trillion yuan) and Guangdong province (3.29 trillion yuan).

In terms of growth rate, China's fixed-asset investment grew 8.1 percent in 2016, down from 10 percent in 2015 and 15.7 percent in 2014, official data showed.
