Xinbei District (simplified Chinese: 新北区; traditional Chinese: 新北區; pinyin: Xīnběi Qū; literally: "new north"), alternatively called the New District or the High-tech Development Zone, is one of five district under the jurisdiction of Changzhou in Jiangsu province of the People's Republic of China.[1] The local language is the Changzhou dialect of Wu Chinese. It covers an area of 425 square kilometers in the northern part of Changzhou prefecture. In 2005 the total population was recorded at 480,000 people. The postal code for the district is 213161.

The district was established in August 1992 by the regional government as a high-tech manufacturing area. Businesses in the region also receive some preferential policies granted by the local government.[2]

It is also home to 7,636 domestic and overseas companies, 18 of which are on Fortune Global 500 list. As a result, a number of foreign styled restaurants and bars have been able to establish themselves, catering mostly to the expatriate community.

Xinbei is also home to the Changzhou campus of Hohai University and the Changzhou International School.
