Tianjin City

Tianjin is located in the northeast of the North China Plain in the Bohai Sea area. With rivers traveling through the city, Tianjin has been a water resource since ancient times. Tianjin has a history of more than 600 years since its establishment in 1404. In 1860, Tianjin was opened up as a trading port, and thereafter became a gateway to North China and the base of the “Westernization Movement”. Tianjin witnessed military modernization and other social developments in railway, telegraph, telephone, postal service, mining, modern education, and judicature sectors. Tianjin became the second largest industrial and commercial city in China and the biggest financial and commercial center of North China.

After the founding of modern China, Tianjin, as a central municipality, has made brilliant achievements in economic and social developments. Entering the 21st century, Tianjin Binhai New Area was incorporated into the national development strategy, leading the Bohai Sea coastal region as a new economic growth driver for China after the Pearl River Delta and Yangtze River Delta economic zones.
