Panyu District, located in the central and southern parts of Guangdong province, is in the geometric center of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao and the Pearl River Delta. It is a transport hub of the Pearl River Delta region, as well as a bridge linking east and west Guangdong. Currently, a comprehensive transport system, including road, rail, sea, air, pipeline and other modes, has been formed. Panyu is a key region of Guangzhou's "southward expansion project", gathering together Guangzhou's emerging industries and service providers. To be built into a new urban center suitable for working and living, the district has very promising prospects.
Panyu, China's earliest county, was built in 214 BC (the 33rd year of Emperor Qin Shi Huang's reign) and now has over 2,200 years of history. Since long ago, it has been an important port city, a famous "breadbasket", and one of the birth places of Lingnan culture.
The Pearl River Delta, China's most economically developed region, accommodates a variety of industries and its secondary and tertiary industries are highly developed. With one tenth of the world's consumer goods being made here, the delta is one of the world's manufacturing centers. Panyu, located at the center of the Pearl River Delta region, owns complete industrial supporting facilities, having obvious advantages in electronic information, machinery equipment, digital optics, fine chemicals, electricity transmission, distribution and transformation. The Gold and silver jewelry processing industry is a highlight of the district. In 2005, its jewelry processing & export value reached 1.057 billion US dollars, accounting for a quarter of that of the entire country and the processing amount accounted for 60% of that of Hong Kong's exported jewelry.
The tourism industry of Panyu is developing rapidly. The district has the Chime Long tourist resort, a state 5A-class tourist destination, the Lotus Hill, a state 4A-class tourist destination, and the Baomoyuan Garden, one of the four famous gardens in Guangdong.
Panyu is famed for its superior living environment. It features many recreational sites and beautiful international communities with complete facilities and convenient transportation. Supporting facilities also help to create a good living and working environment for businessmen and international friends in Panyu.
