Tianjin is the birthplace of modern Chinese industries, such as watches, bicycles and televisions. Today, it is one of North China’s leading industrial centers. Key industries include electronics, oil refining, automobile manufacturing and information technology. Global giants, such as Samsung and Motorola, have a significant presence in Tianjin. As the region’s consumer economy develops, Tianjin is also evolving into an e-commerce hub.
Tianjin plays a central role in providing goods and services to the region’s large population. It is also a key hub for the movement of goods in and out of the country. As a result, the region is studded with industrial properties and active warehouses. Several freight rail lines and expressways connect Tianjin to Beijing and other cities along the densely populated Bohai peninsula. Port of Tianjin, the main point of transit for cargo entering and exiting North China, is the tenth-largest cargo port in the world and the fifth biggest in China, handling 14 million TEUs annually. Tianjin Binhai International Airport is the 13th-largest cargo airport in China.
