V. City Profile
Tianjin is a municipality directly under the central government and is located at the center of the Bohai Sea region. It first originated in the estuary of the North and South Canals and the Haihe River. In AD 1404 when Tianjin was officially established, it had already been an important hub connecting the economies of north and south China. In 1860, Tianjin became a treaty port and a frontier region for north part of China to open up to the outside world, and took the lead in various fields of social development of modern China. In 1978, it became one of the first open cities. In 2006, after the development of Tianjin Binhai New Area was included in national development strategies, Tianjin has made full use of policy advantages in embarking on explorations, and achieved booming economic and social development, and contributed a lot to building the Bohai region into a new growth pole following the Pearl River Delta and the Yangtze River Delta. With the implementation of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integration initiative and the further development of the Pilot Free Trade Zone, Tianjin has been continuously deepening the transformation and adjustment of its economic and industrial structures. Currently, Tianjin is focusing on the creation of a national advanced manufacturing and R&D base, a core area of international shipping in north China, a demonstration area for financial innovation and operations, as well as a pioneering area for reform and opening up to the rest of the world.
