TEDA is the abbreviation for “Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area”, an originally 33.78 sq. km area located in Tanggu District, about 50 km from the city of Tianjin. Nowadays, with the establishment of TEDA WEST, another 48 sq. km has been added to the total size of TEDA area.
The Chinese version of TEDA is 泰达 (tài dá), which is pronounced in roughly the same way as its English counterpart. Its first part 泰 (tài) means "peace", and the second part 达 (dá) means "prosperity."
TEDA was established on December 6, 1984 as one of the first state-class economic-technological development areas in China. The four key industries in TEDA are: electronics and communications, food, machinery, and pharmaceuticals. By the end of March, 2007, 4354 foreign companies from 74 countries and regions have settled down in TEDA with a total investment volume up to 35.668 billion US dollars, among which 129 companies were set up by 59 multinational corporations out of Fortune Global 500. Vigorous economic growth has ranked TEDA among the best in the country's economic development areas.
As the center of Tianjin Binhai New Area which has been listed into the state entire development strategy, TEDA is aiming at becoming a modern base for manufacture, research and development, an international center for logistic and shipping, as well as an ecologically ideal residential area.
TEDA is conveniently connected to Tianjin and Beijing by Jin-Bin Highway, Jin-Bin Light Railway, Tang-Jin Highway and Jing-Jin-Tang Highway. The availability of western goods, groceries, restaurants and services in TEDA has grown remarkably during the past three years.
