Transportation in Jingzhou is convenient, it is designated as a regional hub in MOFCOM’s development plan (2015-2020) of distributive trade and logistics. A number of highways and railways, including the Jiaozuo-Liuzhou Railway and the Jingmen-Shashi Railway, connect the city with other cities throughout China. Jingzhou is also easily accessible by air. Yichang Sanxia International Airport and Shashi Airport are within an hour drive from Jingzhou's downtown area.

Jingzhou has a rather significant agricultural sector which made up 22% of its GDP. Jingzhou is famed as a land of fish and rice in Hubei.

The largest contributor to the economy is the industry sector. Pillar industries include food processing, garment and textiles and chemical products. Leading enterprise is Sanonda, a Chinese fertiliser and pesticide maker. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary under China National Agrochemical Corp.
