Taizhou city is located in the middle coastal area of Zhejiang Province, bordering East China Sea in the east, Wenzhou in the south, Lishui and Jinhua in the west, and Shaoxing and Ningbo in the north. The beauty of a coastal city was in the imagination of Du Fu, a famous Tang Dynasty poet who wrote in one of his poems “Sprawling sea and land with lush islands and beautiful clouds meeting on the horizon”. The urban area of Taizhou is consisted of Jiaojiang, Huangyan and Luqiao Districts, with 2 county-level cities of Linhai and Wenling, and 4 counties of Yuhuan, Tiantai, Xianju and Sanmen.
Taizhou enjoys the reputation as “a famous mountain on the sea”. The destiny of this famous, scenic city is closely related to its long history. It is the birthplace of the ancient Chinese Xiatang Culture. It is home to the Tiantai Mountain, recognized as the birthplace of the Tiantai sect, the first truly Chinese sect in the history of Chinese Buddhism. It is the place where the fleet of vessels of the Kingdom Wu in the Three Kingdoms period of China established relationship with Taiwan for the first time in the history of China. Since remote times, numerous men of letters and chivalrous heroes have contributed their talents to the glory of Taizhou. Amidst the vast greenery surrounding the famous mountains and temples in Taizhou, one can hear soul-refreshing whispering. The firmness and grandeur of mountains and sea, and the charm of water and the amiable disposition of Taizhou people constitute the blood that flows in the arteries of Taizhou, and are the force behind the unfailing prosperity of this famous city.
Taizhou is the place where dreams come true, hopes take off, one miracle leads to another. Taizhou people are born wise, decisive, cool-headed and enterprising. Private economy is the best source of income of the locals and is the best way of revitalizing the city and contributing to the country. With exceptional diligence, Taizhou people have left their footprints in every corner of the world. ‘Made in Taizhou’ has gone beyond a ‘label’ of Taizhou. It is more a trend. It’s not hard to understand all the hardship the ‘Taizhou Mode’ has experienced over the past three decades and the glory that has been carried forward.
