Yichun Economic and Technological Development Zone
Located in the northern part of downtown, the Yichun Economic and Technological Development Zone lies at the intersection of State Road 320 and the Shanghai-Kunming Expressway.
Founded in September 2003, it fills a planning area of 81.5 square kilometres with a built-up area of about 20 square kilometres. It has 600-plus registered companies, 300-plus production enterprises and 60,000 local people.
In May 2006, the Zone gained approval as a provincial development area and was soon ranked as Jiangxi’s most advanced industrial parks. Among other distinctions, it is regarded as a leading eco-industrial park and the first provincial modern service area. In January 2013, it became a National Economic and Technological Development Zone.
The Zone firmly relies on Yichun’s industrial base and resource conditions while actively coordinating a Poyang Lake ecological economic area. By constantly improving industrial planning, adjusting modes of economic growth and building strategic emerging industrial systems, the Zone has distinguished itself, forming the first state-level new-lithium-energy industrial base, plus provincial electromechanical, services and medicine industrial bases. All of these now form dominant industries.
