Central China region.
Green = Rise of Central China Plan

Central China (simplified Chinese: 华中; traditional Chinese: 華中; pinyin: huá zhōng) is a geographical and a loosely-defined cultural region that covers the central area of China. This region includes the provinces of Henan, Hubei and Hunan, as Jiangxi is sometimes regarded to be part of this region. Central China is now officially part of South Central China governed by the People's Republic of China. In the context of the Rise of Central China Plan by the State Council of the People's Republic of China in 2004, surrounding provinces including Shanxi, Anhui, are also defined as regions of Central China development zones.
