Shanghai Jiading Export Processing Zone (Shanghai Jiading EPZ) is located within Jiading Industrial Zone in the northwestern part of Shanghai, bordering Kunshan. Kunshan has the second-largest county-level economy in China after Jiangyin. Situated in Jiading District, Jiading EPZ is 30 km from the center of Shanghai. It won approval to be a state-level development zone in 2005 and commenced official operation in 2008. The area of the zone is 3 sq km. Approximately 1 sq km has been developed.

Shanghai Jiading District has a convenient transportation system. It is only 25 km from Shanghai Hongqiao Airport, Shanghai Railway Station and Shanghai Port, which was China's busiest port in terms of container traffic. Shanghai Pudong International Airport, which was the largest airport in China in terms of cargo throughput, is just 75 km away. The Shanghai-Nanjing Highway, the Shanghai-Jiading Highway, State Highway 204 and State Highway 312 all travel through the district, connecting it with other major cities in the Yangtze River Delta.

Investment Climate
Shanghai Jiading EPZ was the sixth export-processing zone to be constructed in Shanghai. It mainly encourages investment in electronic components, automobile parts, natural medicines, biopharmaceuticals, precision machinery and new materials.

In a promotional meeting held by the Jiading local government in Shanghai in 2005, Shanghai Jiading EPZ attracted 23 foreign-funded projects worth US$950 million in total. It also attracted ten domestically-invested projects worth RMB 503 million in total.

Johnson Health Tech from Taiwan and Shanghai Guanqun Sports Equipment have agreed to invest US$60 million and US$20 million, respectively, into sports equipment plants in the export-processing zone. Johnson Health’s factory will cover an area of over 26,000 sq m. The initial phase of construction has already been completed.

In 2012, the zone’s foreign trade value grew 61.1% year on year to US$490 million, comprising US$230 million in exports and US$260 million in imports, up 71.1% and 53% year on year, respectively.
