Tianjin, located in the north-east of the country, is the fourth largest city in China. In the 11th Five-Year Plan, published in 2006, it was designated to follow the examples of Shenzhen and Pudong (Shanghai) to become the “third pole” of China’s economic growth. The province-level municipality has been recording the highest GDP in China since 2010, outperforming both Beijing and Shanghai.

As the biggest port in Northern China and shipping gateway to Beijing offering exceptional conditions for foreign investment in the recently created Binhai New Area, Tianjin has a lot to offer to European SMEs.
