China Information: Yellow River (Huanghe) Delta

The Yellow River Delta
The Yellow River is the second longest river in China and its valley is regarded as the cradle of Chinese civilization. Originating on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the river has the highest silt content in the world because it washes away much yellow soil as it flows through China’s Loess Plateau. Hence it’s named, the Yellow River.

The Yellow River Delta is situated in the Binzhou Prefecture near the City of Dongying in north-western Shangdong Province. It has a population of 5, 2 million and covers an area of 18,000 square kilometers. The delta is very rich in arable land and other natural resources. In addition to 400,000 hectares of alkaline soil yet to be developed, the Yellow River adds 2,000 hectares of new land at its estuary every year. Proven petroleum reserves of 23.2 billion cubic meters lie beneath vast stretches of beaches and mud flats used for producing salt, bittern and other industrial raw materials.

The Yellow River Delta is flanked by the Shangdong Peninsula to the north and Liaodong Peninsula to the east. It sites right at the confluence of China’s Bohai Economic Zone and the economic belt of the Yellow River reaches, separated from Japan and Korea to the east by the Yellow Sea. This favourable location will enable the area to become a major raw materials center for north-eastern Asia in the future.
