Chaozhou City

銆怗eneral Introduction銆

Connecting Fujian in the east, Shantou in the south and Meizhou in the north, Chaozhou is Guangdong's eastern entrance point. It administers Chao'an County, Raoping County, Xiangqiao District and Fengxi District. It covers an area of 3613.9 square kilometers with a population of 2,530,000.


Chaozhou is a national historical and cultural city. It was founded in the sixth year of Xianhe rule (A.D. 331) in the Eastern Jin Dynasty in Haiyang's County, and has a history dating back 1674 years. Emperor Sui Wen repealed the county and set up the state during the Kaihuang Period. Chaozhou was so named because it is where the tide passes.


Chaozhou stresses the development of private economy. It has seven pillar industries, namely ceramics & porcelain, clothing, food, electronics, stainless steel, plastics and printing & packaging.
