    Re: mainland

    "in mainland China" is correct

    Examples: There are more than six billion people in mainland China.

    During the second world war Japan landed forces on beaches in mainland China.

    There are many prosperous businesses in mainland China.

    Re: mainland

    Also, if you don't give the name of the country, we do say 'on the mainland'.
