While Xiangyang used to focus on the textile industry, it has since developed into the leading automobile city in central China, where European companies have also built their plants.
From Germany Kokinetics near Frankfurt (the world leader in moving parts in car seats) and Koki Technik Transmission Systeme (transmission systems) from the Chemnitz area are based there. The French automotive group PSA, Nissan from Japan and Volvo from Sweden are also based there.
Xiangyang, in Hubei Province in central China, which was called Xiangfan until 2010, is a road and rail junction and has an international airport. Its administrative area covers 19,626 km² and has about 5.84 million inhabitants (2008).
Its city centre lies on the banks of the Han Jiang River between Wuhan and Xi’an and consists of three districts on the two banks of the Han – Fancheng and Xiangzhou on the north bank and Xiangcheng on the south bank.
