Wenjiang, covering 277 square kilometers, is the site of the ancient Yufu 
Kingdom more than 4,000 years ago.

Wenjiang is integrating medical science, medicine and medical care to create an 
all-in-one healthcare industry. It has rolled out some of the country's leading 
industrial policies to build a collaborative reform area of the China (Sichuan) 
Pilot Free Trade Zone.

At present, Wenjiang district has gathered more than 300 leading biomedical 
enterprises and medical research institutions, such as WuXi AppTech and Sichuan 
Kelun Pharmaceutical. Insurers such as China Life and Taikang have also 
invested in the district.

Wenjiang has a comfortable and livable environment, with a comprehensive 
transportation system covering its whole area. 

Wenjiang has a number of excellent schools, three of them are listed in the 
country's top 100. It has five 3A-grade general hospitals. Seven special 
medical institutions are under construction. This year, the district developed 
new projects to boost consumption.

With its outstanding ecological resources, Wenjiang is a well-known 
international garden city, that is, a place deemed ecologically friendly by 
Chinese government. It is a national ecological civilization construction 
demonstration area with an urban greening rate of 47 percent.

Its greenway runs from the south to the north of the district, connecting 133 
square kilometers of flowers and trees and more than 2,000 forest linpan.

The south of the district has developed into a 110-sq-km modern ecologically 
friendly region, which has water and green vegetation. It is considered a 
livable place. The north is a vitality filled 167-sq-km ecological park. 

"I am satisfied with the environment here because the gardens and river are 
nice. I like running beside the river," said Francisco Rubio Morales, a Spanish 
expatriate who has worked in China for eight years.

"The environment is modern, and every day you can see the improvement in 
services and new commercial areas."

"In another way the transformation of Wenjiang to a modern region is very 
special for me. To see a lot of young families and young people revitalize the 
new Wenjiang is exciting and gives me confidence for the future."
