about

Zhuhai is a coastal city in Guangdong Province, located in the Pearl River Delta in southern China. It is situated immediately north of Macau, with the two cities connected by the Zhuhai-Macau Cross Border Industrial Zone. Zhuhai was one of the original Special Economic Zones established in the 1980s, a direct result of China's 'Reform and Opening' policy spearheaded by then-leader Deng Xiaoping. The city was designated as a location that could experiment with market reforms and offer preferential policies to attract foreign investment. As a result, Zhuhai has seen rapid development, evolving from a fishery town into a modern city known for its livable environment and burgeoning high-tech industries. Notable is the Hengqin New Area, which is being developed as part of China's Greater Bay Area initiative to further integrate Hong Kong, Macau, and Mainland China. Hengqin is focused on tourism, finance, scientific research, and new technologies. Zhuhai is geographically remarkable for its long coastline, boasting over 100 islands that vary in size. It has a subtropical marine climate, characterized by mild winters and hot, humid summers. Due to its scenic beaches and islands, such as Dong'ao Island and Hebao Island, it is a popular tourist destination in China, often dubbed as the 'Chinese Riviera.' Culturally, Zhuhai blends traditional Cantonese heritage with a modern cosmopolitan lifestyle. The regions around Zhuhai have been inhabited for thousands of years, with local history often entwined with maritime activity and defense against pirates. Zhuhai is also known for its Opera Festival and the Zhuhai International Mozart Competition for Young Musicians, demonstrating the city’s engagement with the arts. Landmarks like the Fisher Girl Statue and the New Yuanming Palace, a partial reconstruction of the original Summer Palace in Beijing, are significant cultural symbols and tourist attractions. Demographically, Zhuhai has a population of over 1.7 million people, with the majority being Han Chinese. A considerable portion of the population has migrated from other parts of China, drawn by the city's economic opportunities. In terms of education, Zhuhai is home to the United International College, the first full-scale collaboration between a Chinese and foreign university. It also houses many research institutes that contribute to the city's advancements in technology and sciences. Zhuhai has been consistently ranked as one of China's most livable cities due to its clean air, substantial greenery, and relatively low population density compared to other Chinese megacities. Its proximity to Macau and Hong Kong also incentivizes multi-cultural exchanges and a diverse business environment. The Zhuhai Airshow is a notable event, attracting international attention to the city's aerospace and defense technology sectors. As China continues to develop and integrate its southern regions, Zhuhai is likely to play an increasingly important role as a hub of innovation, culture, and trade in the Pearl River Delta region. Its strategic significance is bolstered by major infrastructure projects like the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, which is the world's longest sea-crossing bridge and tunnel system, designed to enhance connectivity within the Greater Bay Area.
