Heilongjiang Manufacturing & Investment Information

Heilongjiang is China’s northernmost province and leader in the inland oil extraction, wheat and grain production, and logging industries.  Heilongjiang shares the majority of its border with Russia and has traditionally attracted a majority of Russian foreign investment.  Heilongjiang’s natural resources and convenient location have made it an attractive place for private investors.  Oil and timber projects have been a contributing factor to its FDI.  The city of Daqing, in Western Heilongjiang, is well known within China for heavy worker unionization and some of China’s most powerful labor unions. Despite this, Heilongjiang’s favorable investment incentives and its 34 national and state level development zones make it a cost efficient place to invest.
