Strategic location

Updated: 2013-08-29

Fujian has a superior geographic position at the intersection of the Yangtze and Pearl River deltas, just 78 miles from Taiwan, and it has close trade and economic relations with China’s inland provinces. It also strives to promote the Haixi Economic Zone – the Economic Zone on the West Coast of the Taiwan Strait - with support from the central government.

Strategic location

Fujian has a competitive advantage from its large diaspora and its close cultural and business ties with Taiwan, and the economic and cultural integration of Fujian and Taiwan will reach unprecedented levels over the next few years. Fujian aims to use its many successes in cross-Straits cooperation [NOTE: is this correct?] and cross-South-China-Sea economic cooperation to position itself as a strategic economic hub.

Fujian is expected to become one of the main gateways to China and the Asia Pacific region, with industrial cooperation expanding to ASEAN countries, Japan and Korea, and to North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) countries and the EU.
