With Jiangmen enjoying the benefits of both land and maritime resources and has a rich history of overseas Chinese culture, efforts will be made to develop the city into a new growth centre on the west bank of the Pearl River and into the gateway to the coastal economic belt.
This remark was delivered by Chen Xiaoman, Deputy Director-General of the Development and Reform Bureau of Jiangmen Municipal Government, in a recent interview with Southcn.com and Newsgd.com.
Jiangmen is located in the southwest corner of the Pearl River Delta, some 70 km from Guangzhou. It has excellent waterway access and is the chief agricultural market centre for the coastal region west of Guangzhou. The city is also the birthplace of over 4 million overseas Chinese.
