Pujiang County (simplified Chinese: 蒲江县; traditional Chinese: 蒲江縣; pinyin: Pújiāng Xiàn) is under the administration of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, China. It is the southernmost division of Chengdu City.

Geography

Pujiang County is in the Southwest part of the Sichuan Basin and in the area from East longitude 103°19′to 103°41′ and from North latitude 30°05′ to 30°20′. It borders Pengshan and Meishan in the east, Mingshan in the west, Danlin (Danleng County) in the south, and Qionglai City in the north, stretching 37 kilometers from east to west and 27.5 kilometers from north to south.

History

In the 4th century BC the Qing Kingdom annexed the Shu Kingdom and established Puyang county in the Pushui area. In the Han Dynasty, Puyang county was eliminated and affiliated with Linyi county. In 554 AD, it was built as Guangding county and in 601 AD the name was changed to Pujiang. The county was originally located in Lixudi in the north and during the Hongwu Emperor reign, the emperor moved the county to what is now Heshan town under the jurisdiction of Qiongzhou, and later under Meishan, then Wenjiang. In 1983 it was put under the administration of the city of Chengdu.

Industrial area

The urban district, Pujiang Centralized Area for Industrial Development, is near to Chendu-Ya'an Highway, 68 kilometers from Chengdu. The area is the only processing center for agriculture by-products at the state level in Chengdu. The size is approximately 6 square kilometers and the shorter-term development area is 5.4 square kilometers. Its emphasis is on developing food drinking biology, medicine, light industry, manufacturing, and other high technology ventures.
