Qidong Introduction

Qidong City, a county-level city under the jurisdiction of Nantong, is situated in the north of Yangtze River, the opposite of Shanghai. Qidong is a land that has “the earliest dawn” in Jiangsu, the most eastern city in China, and is dubbed “a pearl of river and sea”. Geographicaly, the land is a plain formed by sediment of sand particles brought by the Yangtze River in a history of more than a thousand of years.
Qidong is traditionally considered as an agricultural land in Jiangsu and its fishery income adds more economic strength to the city. The water resource is abundant and the underground water level is o­nly 1.2 to 1.6 m deep.  The fishery industry, relying o­n nearby the East China Sea and deep ocean, develops fast. The fishery port, the Lu Shi Port, is the fourth largest fishery port in China. The city has been ranked at 55th o­n the list of China’s Top 100 Counties (county-level cities) for its comprehensive economic strength.
It has established six industrial zones, including Qidong Economic Development Zone, Lushi Oceanic Economic Zone, Bingjiang Chemical Garden, Binghai Industrial Park, etc.
The economic expansion over the last decades has added numerous new sectors to the city’s industry, including texture, mechanic, pharmaceutical, chemical and civil constructional industries.
Qidong has well instituted 9-year compulsory education system for youths and its high schools including junior and senior high schools achieve a significant graduation rate.
Tourist attractions include relics left from a legendary figure in Chinese history, Lu Dongbin. The Lushi town, a legendary fishery town, has a history of more than thousand of years. It is a place to see either natural beauty or historical heritage.
