Why Tianjin

Advantageous Location

Updated: 2018-06-29

Tianjin is located on the west coast of the Pacific Ocean, in the convergence zone of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Urban Agglomeration and the Bohai-Rim Economic Circle. It is also the meeting point between the eastern Land Silk Road and the northern Maritime Silk Road in the Belt and Road Initiative, as well as a starting point of the Sino-Mongolian-Russian Economic Corridor. Backing onto North, Northeast and Northwest China, it boasts vast economic hinterland. Facing Northeast Asia and the Asia-Pacific economic circle, it is an important window for China's participation in regional economic integration and economic globalization, as well as a channel for landlocked countries to have access to the sea. The port resources constitute the core strategic resources and the greatest advantages of Tianjin: Tianjin Port sea routes now cover all the major ports in the world; the world's top 3 shipping alliances have all opened their largest liner lines with Tianjin Port. Now, Tianjin Port is on its way of becoming a "golden node" on the 21st century Maritime Silk Road.

Blessed with 5 strategic opportunities (namely the coordinated Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei development, the construction of the free trade pilot zone, the construction of independent innovation demonstration zone, Belt and Road Initiative, and the opening up of Binhai New Area), the advantages of Tianjin's location have become more prominent, and urban vitality and competitiveness have been further inspired. Tianjin will give full play to its advantages in location, ports and industrial clusters, focus on deepening the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei cooperation, serve China's new strategy of opening-up to the outside world, and strive to become a new fulcrum of the Belt and Road Initiative and a hub of global resource allocation.
