[photopress:Zone_bridge_1_1.jpg,full,alignright]Hangzhou Wan Bay New Zone is now connected in a logical way with the Ningbo Economic and Technological Development Zone.
First the Ningbo Economic zone was a major success.
Now, the bridge, which spans the mouth of the Yangtze River from Jiaxing — an hour’s drive southwest of Shanghai, to Cixi — an hour’s drive east of Hangzhou, bring the two closer together.
The Hangzhou Wan Bay New Zone at the base of the Cixi-end of the bridge is an amalgamation of several zones, including the Zhejiang Cixi Economic Development Zone, the Zhejiang Cixi Export Processing Zone.
Established in 2001 the total area of the New Zone is 145 square kilometers.
At the moment it is like a dead village witing to spring to life. Even the Export Processing Zone, which had been established in 2005, is without companies.
[photopress:Zone_bridge_3.jpg,full,alignleft]Cixi itself is about the size of Suzhou City, 1.2 million.
Cixi has become, in the theory, the Plastics Capital of China; along with Yuyao and Ningbo creating a Plastics Triangle of production capability. Now that thought it about to become a reality. This is a new Zone with excellent prospects simply because of the bridge. It makes the logistics feasible, affordable.
This will the zone to watch for growth. The figures this year should be little less than startling.
