Ningbo, China

Population: 8,2 million


Located in the northeastern province of Zhejiang between the East China Sea and various mountain ranges, Ningbo has over 1500 km of coastline and over 600 islands. A major exporter of electrical goods and textiles, Ningbo is one of China's main industrial and economic centres. With roots in the maritime silk road, Ningbo's port is today one of the busiest in the world.  Like many cities on the eastern coast, Ningbo is facing the challenges of rapid urbanisation and on-going industrialisation.
