Hakkas in Guangdong Province today
I came across this relatively new book which I cannot remember the title.
Here are some information from the book:
In Guangdong Province today, there are 37 million Cantonese, 13 million
Hakkas and 10 million Teochews (including a smaller group which I cannot
remember the name but categorised under Teochews).
The Cantonese continue to stay in the fertile plains and many are into
business and entrepreneurship.
The Hakkas still stay in the mountainous regions. Compared to the Teochews,
they are not as united (but more united than the Cantonese). The Hakkas are
still the most hardworking and studious. Many made their mark through their
paper qualifications (entries into government, etc). However, there is a
lesser number making entries to the higher echelon of the China's
government compared to the past.
