The city has been named a National Garden City, China’s Outstanding Tourism City, China’s Happiest City, and ranked as China’s most liveable city in recent years.

The modern industrial structure of Zhuhai, featured with “3H1C” (high-end services sector, high-end manufacturing sector, high and new technology sector and characteristic marine economic and eco-agricultural sector), is injecting powerful impetus and infinite vitality for the new emergence and re-flourishment of the city.

Core sectors of Zhuhai’s industry currently include electronic information, biomedicine, household appliances, power and energy, petrochemicals and precision mechanics. Zhuhai is striving to establish itself as an innovation-driven city and stepping up to form a modern industrial structure which has smart manufacturing as the core and comprises high-end manufacturing, high and new technology, marine economic and eco-agricultural sectors.

The Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area supports Hengqin, Zhuhai in providing a pivot for Macao’s development of cross-border e-commerce (CBEC) industries, and facilitating the convenient entry of products from Portuguese-speaking countries into the Mainland market via Macao.
