Sister cities of Shenyang
Shenyang (simplified Chinese: 沈阳; traditional Chinese: 瀋陽; pinyin: Shěnyáng; Mandarin pronunciation: [ʂən˧˩jɑŋ˧˥]), formerly Mukden ( in Manchu), is the capital and largest city of Liaoning Province, as well as the largest city in Northeast China. Currently holding sub-provincial administrative status, the city was once known as Shengjing (盛京) or Fengtian Prefecture (奉天府). In the 17th century, Shenyang was conquered by the Manchu people and briefly used as the capital of the Qing Dynasty.
Along with its nearby cities, Shenyang is an important industrial centre in China, and serves as the transportation and commercial hub of China's northeast−particularly with Japan, Russia, and Korea. A titan of heavy industry since the 1930s, and the spearhead of the Chinese central government's Northeast Area Revitalization Plan, the city has been diversifying its industry and now has a solid industrial foundation, a good land and air transport network, abundant natural resources, and a skilled workforce. Investment subsidies are granted to multinational corporations (MNCs) that set up offices or headquarters in Shenyang.
The sub-provincial city region includes the 9 metropolitan districts of Shenyang proper, the county-level city of Xinmin, and 3 counties of Liaozhong, Kangping and Faku.
