Brief Introduction [source: http://www.sxgxt.gov.cn/gyyq/30605.jhtml]
The Xi’an Chanhe Economic and Technological Development Zone was approved by the municipal government in 1992. The first phase of the zone is located in the Shilipu Area in Baqiao District of Xi’an Municipality, covering 3.86 square kilometers. It consists of three parts, an industrial zone, a central commercial street, and a southern tourist zone. A prestigious location advantage is enjoyed by the zone, which is only 5 kilometers from the Bell Tower, 3.5 kilometers from the Railway Station, 35 kilometers from the Xianyang International Airport, and 15 kilometers from the site of the Terracotta Warriors and Horses in Lintong. Three national highways, multiple main roads, and over 30 bus lines have made the transport convenient and easy. The Xi’an-Tongguan Highway also starts from here. Additionally, the world-famous Banpo Museum is just across the Chan’he River.
The zone is currently home to more than 50 domestic- and foreign-funded companies, including Xi’an Auqin Furnace Charge Co., Ltd., the largest ferroalloy producer in northwest China, and Xi’an Qinzhu Security Equipment and Technology Co., Ltd., a leading coal mining security equipment producer. Total investment is close to 6 billion yuan. Tourist projects including the Xi’an Banpo Lake Resort and garden-style residential projects such as Hua Qing Yuan, Jinyu Qingqing Garden, and Qinshui New City, as well as the first nano-technology park in China funded dominantly with foreign funds, Xi’an Nano-Technology Industrial Park, have been inaugurated in the Park. They constitute new growth points in the Baqiao District.
