Zhuhai in foreigners’ eyes:
Zhuhai has beautiful natural environment. It preserves the coastal ecologic system, and provides a great living environment for the people who work and live here. It is a blue and green city.

Zhuhai has great economic potential. It has an established industry, beautiful environment, and solid urban planning.

Zhuhai has the Fisher Maiden, while Copenhagen has the Little Mermaid. I think Zhuhai is similar to Copenhagen in a way: it is a romantic city.

Zhuhai in international media

Analysts attributed the growing popularity of Zhuhai to the headway it has made in ecological development as well as to the city’s strategy of scientific development. Zhuhai has pushed for the construction of a cloud computing data center and a comprehensive traffic information platform to shape itself into a smart city.
Le Figaro, French daily newspaper:
Zhuhai has merged its industrial competitiveness with its positioning as a new Special Zone of Conservation Culture and a Demo City of Scientific Development Concept, which coincides with the Belt and Road Initiative and the “Made in China 2025” plan.
