Zhejiang, which boasts of the longest cross-sea bridge in the world, is located in the southern part of the Yangtze River Delta on the southeast coast of China and northeast of Shanghai, Zhejiang is also known for having the longest coastline among the provinces at 6,600 kilometers.
Zheijiang has 11 cities — Hangzhou, Ningbo, Wenzhou, Huzhou, Jiaxing, Shaoxing, Jinhua, Quzhou, Zhoushan, Taizhou, and Lishui — and a population of 50.6 million as of 2007.
The 36-kilometer Hangzhou Bay Sea-Crossing Bridge, which officially opened to traffic last May 1, connects Ningbo, a port city in Zhejang, to Shanghai.
Several economic zones are also being developed in Zhejiang, among them the Hangzhou Bay New Zone, the Ningbo National Hi-Tech Development Zone and the Ningbo Meishan Free Trade Port Area.
Facing the Hangzhou Bay to its north, the Hangzhou Bay Zone is located in the northern part of Ningbo.
Aside from being a manufacturing and research base, the Hangzhou Bay Zone will be a ‘modern and ecologically-friendly industrial city.’
Inside the Hangzhou zone are the Cixi Export Processing Zone and the Cixi Economic Development Zone.
And while this zone activity is going on the area is being groomed for its massive tourist potential.
The idea is to show the two concepts can work together.
