In 2015, Würth and Haiyan Economic Development Zone officially signed on the Sino-German Economic Advisory Committee Symposium of Premier Keqiang Li and Angela Merkel.
In early 2016, considering Haiyan is one of China’s fastest growing Industrial Development Zones, close proximity to harbor and highways, in the middle of China’s East-Coast Line, and Shanghai-Haiyan high-speed railway will be opened soon.
