Bengbu city is in the center of North Anhui and on the middle reaches of the Huaihe River, which is the demarcation line between South and North China. It has an area of 5,952 square km and a population of some 3.52 million. Under its jurisdiction are four districts (namely, Longzihu, Bengshan, Yuhui and Huaishang), three counties (Huaiyuan, Guzhen and Wuhe) and two provincial-level development areas (one high-tech and one economic).
 

Bengbu teems with river pearls, hence the name the “Pearl City”. It is one of the

birthplaces of the Chinese civilization.

At present, the city serves as a transportation hub in East China and a commercial center of North Anhui.
