China Information: Yangtze (Yangzi, Changjiang) River Delta

The Yangtze River Delta
The Yangtze River (also called Yangzi River, or Changjiang River)  is the longest river in China, with a total length of 6,300 kilometers. Originating on the Qinghai Tibet Plateau, the river flows into the East China Sea. The Yangtze River Delta, situated in southern Jiangsu and northern Zhejiang provinces, covers 100,000 square kilometers. Fourteen cities in the two provinces are located in the region, which has a population of  about 100 million. Shanghai is the main terminus for the delta. With its fertile soil, the Yangtze River Delta produces abundant grain, cotton, hemp and tea.

The delta is dotted with 250 lakes and a network of rivers totaling 40,000 kilometers. The Grand Canal, 1,794 kilometers long, flows from Beijing in the north to Hangzhou, the capital city of Zhejiang Province, in the south. The canal once linked northern and southern China, and facilitated the flow of goods and materials across imperial China. Nearby, the Taihu Lake area in southern Jiangsu Province is known as a land of plenty because it is richly endowed by nature with abundant water and fish resources.

Many cities in the Yangtze River Delta have distinguishing features. Shanghai is a center for metallurgy, machine and ship building, textile and chemicals, and serves as China’s leading industrial and technological base. About 80 percent of all things made in Shanghai are shipped to other parts of china. Shanghai now plays a leading role in the delta’s economic development.

Hangzhou is famous for its beautiful scenery around West Lake, and plus other scenic spot and historical sites. It has rapidly developed its textile and especially its silk industries. Nearby, Suzhou is noted for its ancient Oriental garden dating from as far as back as the Song Dynasty (960-1279).
