Liaocheng lies in prosperous Shandong Province, western Shandong, bordering Henan and Hebei provinces. It sits at the intersection of East, North, and Central China administrative regions. The Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, representing commercial civilization, and the Yellow River, symbolizing agricultural civilization, converge here.
The north-south Beijing-Kowloon Railway and the east-west Jiaoji Railway and Highways intersect to form a “Golden Cross”. Liaocheng plays a pivotal role in spearheading economic growth in western Shandong, and serves as an important channel for economic, technological, and cultural exchange with inland provinces like Shanxi and Hebei.
Leveraging eastern coastal advanced technology and abundant resources, Liaocheng is a vital transportation hub, energy base, inland port city, and regional center where Hebei, Shandong and Henan intersect.
