Fuyuan County (simplified Chinese: 抚远县; traditional Chinese: 撫遠縣; pinyin: Fǔyuǎn Xiàn) is an administrative subdivision of the province of Heilongjiang, China. It is under the jurisdiction of the prefecture-level city of Jiamusi.

Geography

Fuyuan County is located in the lowlands between at the confluence of the Heilongjiang (Amur) River and Wusuli (Ussuri) Rivers. The county seat, Fuyuan Town, sits on the southern bank of the Amur. On the opposite side of the river is Russia's Jewish Autonomous Region.

Fuyuan County is China's easternmost county. Its northern and eastern borders, running along the Heilongjiang (Amur) and Wusuli (Ussuri) Rivers, are also parts of China's international border with Russia. The Bolshoy Ussuriysky Island (Heixiazi Island), partitioned between the two countries by the treaty of 2004, is in the county's northeastern corner, the mid-island border line running about 25 km east of Fuyuan Town. Khabarovsk is about 50 km east of Fuyuan Town (65 km river distance[1]).

The county is a major grain producer.[1]

Fuyuan has port facilities on the Amur River as well.[4]

Fuyuan Dongji Airport opened in 2014.
