Advantages in Wuhan

1Major City in Central China

Wuhan is located in Central China. China’s H-shaped economic development pattern in the coastal areas, the Yangtze River Economic Belt and the western region has taken shape, in which Wuhan serves as the transportation junction connecting the east and the west, linking the north and the south. Therefore, it is crowned by the domestic economists as “China’s Economic and Geographic Center” and has ranked the 6th of the “Top 50 Cites with the Strong Comprehensive Strength in China” for years consecutively. In the UN World Urbanization Prospects report issued in February, 2002, Wuhan ranked the 6th among the 25 most promising Chinese cities.

2. Geography

Located in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River, Wuhan has been regarded as the “thoroughfare to nine provinces”. Beijing-Guangzhou Railway and the Yangtze River converge in Wuhan and also Beijing-Guangzhou Railway intersect in it, thus forming a railway network linking North China, Southwest China, Central South China and East China. Moreover, Beijing-Zhuhai Expressway and Shanghai—Chengdu Expressway converge in Wuhan and a high-speed railway along the Yangtze River will be completed here soon. Therefore, a “flexible multimodal transportation system” combining expressways, high-speed railways and water transportation on the Yangtze River will give greater prominence to Wuhan’s position of strategic importance as a junction of water and land transportation in China.

3. Science and Education

Wuhan is the scientific, cultural and educational center of Central China, with its comprehensive strength in this regard ranking the 3rd among all the large-and medium-sized cities in China, just next to that of Beijing and Shanghai. Wuhan boasts abundant intellectual and human resources. There are 52 regular institutions of higher learning in Wuhan with over 700.000students, 736 scientific and design institutes, 10 state key laboratories, 59 Academicians of China Academy of Science and China Academy of Engineering as well as 450,000 technicians of various kinds. East lake Development Zone in Wuhan is the 2ndl largest intellectual-intensive area only inferior to Zhongguancun in Beijing, playing a leading role in terms of Science and technology development nationwide in the following 5 fields: communication, biological technology, laser, microelectronic technology and new materials.
