Fuzhou is situated in the hinterlands of the Yangtze River Delta, the Pearl River Delta and the southeast triangle of Fujian and has enjoyed the reputation of “Standing by rivers and lakes between Fujian and Guangdong” since ancient times. It has a significant location advantage of being the outer suburbs of Nanchang and a close neighbor of Fujian and Taiwan, linking the east to the west and connecting the south to the north. It is the foremost position of Jiangxi connecting with the Yangtze River Delta, the Pearl River Delta and the southeast trigonum of Fujian, the “bridgehead” to Taiwan and Southeast Asia, and an important part of the Western Taiwan Strait Economic Zone and Poyang Lake Eco-economic Zone.
Among the 11 cities of Jiangxi province, Fuzhou is the closest to the provincial capital, Nanchang with a distance of only 90 kilometers, and 96 kilometers away from Changbei International Airport. Fuzhou borders Fujian in the east, Ganzhou in the south and then Guangdong, and Beijing-Kowloon Railway to the west. It takes only one hour flight from Nanchang International Airport to Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Xiamen and Hong Kong. COSCO International Freight Co. Ltd has set up a container terminal branch in Nanchang for undertaking outbound freight and guarantees the timely, rapid and smooth delivery of products from Fuzhou to all parts of the world. Besides, National Highway 320, 316 and 206, Yingtan-Xiamen Railway, Zhejiang-Jiangxi Railway and Nanchang-Le’an Railway also meet in Fuzhou. Thanks to the Shanghai-Ruili Expressway, Beijing-Fuzhou Expressway, Xiangtang-Putian Railway (with a designed speed of 200 kilometers per hour), Jinan-Guangzhou Expressway and Kunming-Quanzhou Expressway, roads in all counties (districts) of Fuzhou have become high speed. And the “four hours economic circle” in the province and interprovincial “six or eight hours economic circle” across key cities of the Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta and southeast triangle of Fujian have already formed.
