Fengshun

Fengshun (Chinese Postal Map Romanisation: Fungshun or Pungshan; Chinese: 豐順) is a county in Meizhou Municipality (梅州市), Guangdong Province.

Ethno-linguistic Make-up

While Meizhou is famously Hakka, Fengshun is the southernmost of its counties : it borders Jieyang and Chaozhou municipalities and is comprised in their Teochew dialect area. (Teochew being a branch of the Min Nan language centred on the adjacent region of Fujian).

Administration

Fengshun County's executive, legislature and judiciary are in Tangkeng (汤坑), together with its CPC and PSB branches.
