Introduction Located to the south of Shenyang’s downtown, Shenyang High-tech Industrial Development Zone (Shenyang HIDZ) is set up in May 1988, and became a state-level development zone in 1991.

Shenyang HIDZ is located 7 km from Shenyang Taoxian International Airport. Three highways connect it with cities including Yingkou, Dandong, Fushun. The nearest train station is only 4 km from Shenyang HIDZ.

In 2001, Shenyang HIDZ, Shenyang Export Processing Zone and Shenyang Singapore Industrial Park have been merged into Hunnan New District. Shenyang Cross-strait Technological Park (Shenyang CTP) is part of Shenyang HIDZ.

Winning Edge and Limitation Winning Edge
  • Shenyang HIDZ has access to a great talent reserve in Shenyang
  • Shenyang has plenty of land and a steady supply of power and water
  • Shenyang HIDZ is adjacent to Shenyang International Airport

  • Shenyang is too far away to mass market its high-tech products
  • Because Shenyang focuses on the manufacturing industry, Shenyang’s high-tech industry lags behind that of Dalian
