Lianyungang is the eastern end of the New Eurasia Continental Landbridge and the proposed Northern East West Freight Corridor, is one of the first 14 Chinese coastal cities opening to the outside world, and is a rising centre of industry, foreign trade and tourism in east China.
At present, the Chinese government has clearly stated its intention to build an economic belt along the New Eurasia Continental landbridge in the 9th five-year plan of national economy and social development and the long-range goal for the year 2010 and on China's 21st Century Agenda.
