Advantages for Development

Binzhou is one of the birthplaces of the Yellow River culture and Qi culture, and the hometown of Sun Tzu, a world-renowned ancient military strategist. Binzhou borders on mountain in the south and Bohai sea in the north. The Yellow River runs through the city. It has the unique natural endowment of mountain, sea and river in an integral whole. Binzhou is one of the seven coastal cities in Shandong Province, with a territory of 9,600 square kilometers, a coastline of 126 kilometers and a population of 3.92 million.


- Binzhou has unique location and convenient traffic. National strategies such as the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, ecological protection and high-quality development of the Yellow River basin, and the cooperative development of the Bohai Rim region are overlapped here. With Binzhou as the center, it radiates 7 cities 100 kilometers, and 7 second-tier or above cities 300 kilometers. The first-class Binzhou Port is about to be officially opened to the outside world, the only type A1 class 4C large general airport in East China- Dagao Airport is upgrading and expanding its civil airport, and there are nine (9) expressways are under construction or in operation; Jinan-Qingdao High-speed Railway was completed and opened to traffic; the second high speed railway between Beijing and Shanghai, and Jinan-Binzhou High-speed Railway are under construction this year; Binzhou-Dezhou Expressway,  Bohai Rim High-speed Railway, and Binzhou-Zibo High-speed Railway are in synchronized planning; with the convergence of "six high-speed and two railways", as a transportation hub city, Binzhou is ready to leave as soon as you go out. It will soon form a convenient transportation circle, economic circle and life circle that can reach Beijing in 1 hour, Shanghai in 3 hours and Jinan in half an hour. Binzhou will become a hub city of national trunk road high-speed railway and an important node city in the Bohai Rim.


- Binzhou is rich in resources, hard to come by. Binzhou has 1.67 million mu of unused land and 1.23 million mu of shallow tidal flats, it is one of the regions with the most abundant land resources in eastern China. There are over 30 kinds of proven mineral resources such as brine, oil and gas, among which the oil reserves are 750 million tons, natural gas reserves are 16.4 billion cubic meters, and the annual output of raw salt is 2.4 million tons. It is an important base of raw salt production and salt chemical industry in China. Bozhong 19-6 Extra Large Condensate Gas Field Project of CNOOC Group has been settled in Binzhou, with natural gas resources of about 4,489 trillion cubic meters and condensate oil resources of about 420 million cubic meters, with a total oil equivalent of over 800 million cubic meters. It is the largest condensate gas field in eastern China. There are abundant electric power resources, generating 117.3 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity annually, and the lowest price of electricity for industrial and commercial consumption is RMB 0.45 per kilowatt-hour.
