Introduction Anshan High-tech Industrial Development Zone (Anshan HIDZ) was set up in November 1992. It covers an area of 14.67 sq km. It consists of two parts: the eastern zone and the western zone.

The eastern zone covers an area of 7.9 sq km. It is located to the east of Anshan’s downtown area between Dongshan Mountain and Qianshan Mountain. The western zone covers an area of 6.77 sq km and is located to the southwest of downtown.

Both zones are within a ten-minute drive of downtown. One railway and one highway pass Anshan, connecting it with Yingkou, the nearest seaport, and Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning Province.
Investment Climate The two zones of Anshan HIDZ focus on different development directions. The eastern zone encourages scientific research and high-tech industries, while the western zone utilizes advanced technology to rebuild the traditional manufacturing and processing industry.

The key industries for the eastern zone include advanced manufacturing and new materials. Other encouraged industries are electronics and information technology, biology and medicine and fine chemicals.

In advanced manufacturing, the key sectors are equipment manufacturing and industrial automation. Anshan benefits from being near Shenyang, “China’s Equipment Department.” Equipment manufacturing is a traditional industry of Anshan, and thus attracts lots of investors.

Among them, Tsinghua Tongfang is the largest. Its industrial base in Anshan HIDZ involves an investment of RMB 70 million. The annual industrial output of the base will reach RMB 300 million worth of digital TV transmitters. Hainuo Group is another important investor in this field. It is also one of China’s major construction machinery producers.

Industrial automation is a key sector in advanced manufacturing. In this field, Huaye Group is the largest investor. Its main business is the manufacture of transformers, automation equipment and relays.
