Lanzhou is the capital of Gansu Province in northwestern China. With a history stretching back more than 2,000 years, Lanzhou was a major link on the ancient Northern Silk Road as well as a center for Buddhist study.
In recent years prior to 1949, Lanzhou was the capital of a poverty-stricken province. Today, however, it is a major industrial center with its economy driven not only by agriculture but by power generation, mining, manufacturing, and oil refining.
Lanzhou is the collecting center and market for agricultural produce and livestock including spring wheat, vegetables, beans, oil-boiling, melon, peaches, tobacco, roses and lilies. Gansu also has important mineral deposits and its mining industry consists of coal, gold, silver, zinc, nickel, manganese, clay, copper, and dolomite. Gansu’s primary manufacturing industries include textiles, rubber, fertilizers, oil refining petrochemicals, machinery, and metallurgy. In fact, Gansu has one of the largest oil refineries in China and Lanzhou itself is the center of Gansu’s petrochemical industry. Lanzhou’s large refinery is linked to the oil fields at Yumen by pipeline. It also is a key manufacturer for equipment for the oil industry. Within Lanzhou’s textile industry, woolen products and leather goods are particularly noteworthy. Other items manufactured in Lanzhou are locomotives and rolling stock for the northwestern railways, as well as machine tools, mining equipment, aluminum products, industrial chemicals, fertilizers, and rubber products.
