Background Information

The China (Heilongjiang) Pilot Free Trade Zone was one of six new pilot free trade zones approved by the State Council – China’s Cabinet – on Aug 26 last year, bringing the total number of trade zones in China to 18.

The FTZ is undertaking more market-oriented reforms, officials said.

These aim to reinvigorate the country's northeastern region, deepen the industrial restructuring and build transportation and logistics hubs for Russia and Northeast Asia.

They also aim to improve the openness of border areas, deepen trade ties with partners participating in the Belt and Road Initiative and develop the zone into a hub for regional cooperation in Russia and Northeast Asia.

Scope of implementation

The 119.9-square-kilometer FTZ is divided into three districts. The first is a  80-square-kilometer area in the provincial capital of Harbin, the second consists of roughly 20 sq km in China's largest border city of Heihe, while the third covers almost 20 sq km in Suifenhe -- including the Suifenhe Comprehensive Bonded Area.

The Harbin area focuses on the development of such strategic emerging industries as new generation information technology, new materials, high-end equipment and biomedicines – as well as modern service industries including science and technology, finance, cultural tourism and the winter economy.

It aims to become a highland for wide-ranging commerce between Russia and Northeast Asia, a national logistics hub connecting domestic and Eurasian regions and a growth springboard and demonstration zone for the full-scale revitalization of the northeast region.
