    A term in economy

    Hi there,

    What would you call a region/city in a country with the highest rates of production in a certain area?

    In Persian, we use the term 'the pole of production' or 'an economic pole'!

    (Not an economist)

    With no real confidence, I suggest market leader.

    Could you call it an economic leader/front-runner? (Not an economist)

    If you're talking about production, try "leading/largest producer"; e.g.,
    Brazil is the world's leading/largest producer of coffee.

    If you're talking about economic activity (e.g., GDP), try "economic powerhouse"; e.g.,
    China and Japan are the dominant economic powerhouses of Asia.
