    Talking of Corruption in China:

    In China, it's a different story.

    Vs

    It's a different story in China.

    And

    Same industry but different branch.

    VS

    Same market but different category.

    Do both have the same meaning?

    It's a different story in China.

    They mean the same thing.

    And

    Same industry but different branch.
    Same market but different category.

    They mean different things. A market is not an industry. A category is not a branch. Those words are all in your dictionary.
    Hope that helps!

    Would you be able to explain to me what's the difference between these two:

    Same industry but different branch.

    Same market but different category.

    Are they logical and make sense?
