Anshan High-tech Industrial Development Zone (AHIDZ) was approved in 1992 and covers an overall area of 7.9 square kilometers. The eastern section is situated between the Anshan Dongshan Scenic Area and the Qianshan National Park, the zone surrounded by mountains on three sides and a river on the fourth. To date, 4.3 square kilometers of the eastern section and 2.7 square kilometers of the western section have been developed.
AHIDZ provides favorable policies, capital and technology to enterprises with potential and scale. Hainuo Group’s projects in concrete mixing stations and Julong Group’s projects in banknote sorters were awarded treasury bonds and special loans of 343 million RMB (50 million USD). AHIDZ has assisted Huaye Group, RXPE, Leading Group and Weibang Pharmaceutical Company to prepare for IPOs.
This section is located in the east of the city. Planning is based on human-centered design ideas and aims to build an ecological living environment. Focus is on scientific and technological R&D and developing high-tech industries, with priorities being given to advanced manufacturing and new materials industries, supplemented by electronic information, bio-pharmaceutical, fine chemicals, and mechanical and electrical integration industries. The zone wants to create “an R&D base for original innovative products, a concentration base for high-tech products, an incubation base for high-tech products, and an export base for high-tech exports.”
The predecessor of the western section of AHIDZ is Anshan Economic Development Zone, which was established in 1990. Now, 2.7 square kilometers for this section have been developed and are home to 1,100 firms. Specializing on different functions, the western section is divided into the Central Area, Residential Area, Industrial Area and Warehousing Area.
AHIDZ is transforming into a feature park, which, along with Liaoning Julong Financial Equipment Industrial Park and Tsinghua Tongfang (Anshan) Environmental Protection Equipment Industrial Park, has been listed among the top ten industrial parks in Liaoning Province.

Liaoning Liaoyang High-tech Industrial Zone (LLHIZ) is part of the Shenyang Metro in central Liaoning. In contrast to the ancient town of Liaoyang, LLHIZ is a center of 21st century progress. Situated in the southeast of Liaoyang, the zone was founded in 1992. It covers a planned area of 4.4 square kilometers and is 50 kilometers from Shenyang Taoxian International Airport. Shenyang-Dalian Expressway and Harbin-Dalian Railway run through the zone from north to south, Liaoyang-Benxi Railway and Benxi-Liaoyang Expressway from east to west. As a result, the zone developed convenient logistics facilities.
The zone is specializing within four pillar industries: chemicals, chemical fiber, plastic, and non-ferrous metal processing. The chemical industry is specializing on processing raw materials ethylene oxide, C5, and C9. The chemical fiber industry uses polyester and polypropylene to develop functional fiber and non-woven fabrics. The plastic industry makes packaging products, engineering plastics, and plastic building materials, using raw materials like polyester, polypropylene, and polyethylene. Their output accounts for 85 percent of the region.
The High-Tech Zone has exchanges and cooperation with Europe, the United States, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. The zone has a national-level Productivity Promotion Center that integrates promoting scientific and technological achievements, a Spark Program Technology-intensive area, provincial-level high-tech zones, and a provincial science and technology pioneering zone.
