Liaocheng, situated at the juncture of Hebei, Shandong and Henan provinces, currently comprises a district, a county-level city, and six counties, with a total area of 8,715 square kilometers.

It is recognized by the State as a famous city with profound history and splendid culture. The Yellow River, mother of the Chinese nation, and the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal wind through this city and connect each other to nurture this age-old but modern city.

It presently boasts over 400 cultural relics, including three key heritage sites under state protection, and 15 provincial-level protected cultural relic units. Many stories described in the famous Chinese Classical Novels, Water Margin and Jin Ping Mei, are set in Liaocheng.

Liaocheng added 80 foreign-funded enterprises in 2023, up 53.8 percent year-on-year. Its actual use of foreign capital also increased by 17.7 percent year-on-year to $560 million, ranking first in Shandong province in terms of growth rate. Liaocheng has taken the lead in foreign investment growth across the province for seven consecutive months.
