introduction
 
Situated northeast of Henan Province on the Yellow River bank, Puyang has an area of 4188 km² and a population of 3.5million. It borders Hebei Province in the north, Anyang in the west and Xinxiang in the southwest. Divided by the Yellow River, it faces Shandong Province on the east and south. There are five counties and one district under its administration.
Affected by the south-east Asian monsoon circulation around the year and located in the mid-latitude region, the city is categorized as the warm temperate continental monsoon climate which features clearly demarcated seasons. In spring, it is usually dry, windy and sandy. High temperatures and heavy rainfall mark the whole summer. In autumn there are plenty of sunny days as well as long periods of sunshine. In winter, it is characterized by less snow and rainfall. The adequate sunshine meets the needs for crops growing. The annual average temperature stands at 13.3°C, the highest of which reaches 43.1°C, the lowest -21℃. The non-frost period lasts 205 days. The annual precipitation is around 502.3mm~601.3mm. Puyang, a city exuberant with personality and glamour, is like a gem shining bright in the Central Plains.
 A time-honored city in Henan Province, Puyang abounds with its historical and cultural heritage, and is widely acclaimed as one of the birthplaces of the Chinese nation. The Book of Songs, the earliest collection of verses in China, has devoted many poems to depicting the busy scenes of the countryside. In history, a myriad of figures have emerged from Puyang, which lends great glory to this place of simple folkways. Among them are Cang Xie, the inventor of Chinese characters, Wu Qi, a military strategist, Shang Yang, a statesman, Lv Buwei, a great thinker, to name only a few. Puyang is also a renowned ancient battlefield where a lot of major events and wars had occurred.
 In 1987, a historical relic, made up of a series of clams arranged in dragon patterns, was unearthed. The valuable discovery, which could be dated back to more than 6,400 years ago, had pushed forward the history of Chinese civilization for over 1,400 years, and therefore earned itself an international reputation of “the First Dragon of China”. The Chinese Yanhuang Culture Researching Association has accordingly named Puyang “the Hometown of Chinese Dragons”.  Abundant heritage along with a long history has endowed Puyang with plenty of tourism resources, which is certainly of great investment value.
Puyang is a petrol-chemical city. The major mineral resources include petroleum, natural gas, coal, etc. especially rich reserve of high-quality petroleum and natural gas. As an important national petrol-chemical energy base, large-sized enterprises such as Zhongyuan Oilfield, China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation, Zhongyuan Dahua Group and so on have been established there. The petrol-chemical industry has become the support of Puyang’s economy.
