The new district, which covers 493 square km, has a solid foundation of technology and industry and serves as an engine to carry out comprehensive China-Russia cooperation, boost economic development in Northeast China and build special international culture and tourism cluster.

Harbin is the capital city of Heilongjiang province which used to be the country’s industrial base.
