Tianjin is an important port city of the People's Republic of China and is one of the ten most frequented ports in the world. The entire administrative area of the city has an area of 11,943 m2. Tianjin is one of the four government- immediately cities in China, meaning that it is directly subordinated to the central government in Beijing and thus has the same status as a province. The city with 7 million inhabitants is located in the north of China, southeast of Beijing, at the confluence of the Hai He with the Grand Cana, which determines the impressive and diverse cityscape decisively. The convenient logistics location of the city makes Tianjin even more exciting for foreign companies.
The history of Tianjin from a fishing village to a modern trade metropolis dates back many centuries and is strongly linked to the history of the capital. From the 11th to the 14th century, Tianjin was a small seaport, which had great importance for the Imperial Court as a hay-loaf. Later, when originally independent empires were subjected to southern China, the city was transit ports for the tributes and deliveries from those rich to the capital. During the Yuan Dynasty in the 13th century, the imperial canal leading through Tianjin was finally completed and extended to Beijing.
Its name Tianjin the city received from the emperor Zhudi during the early years of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). At that time, the city was given its pre-eminence as a port for Beijing and a strongly fortified garrison town. Later, under the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), Tianjin developed into the thriving trading center that it is until today.
