The State Council officially approved the establishment of the Nanjing Jiangbei New Area in June 2015, which is located in Nanjing, East China's Jiangsu province.

With a planning area of 788 square km, it encompasses a group of industrial parks such as Nanjing New and High Technology Industry Development Zone and Nanjing Cross-Strait Technology Industry Park.

The area is aimed at pushing forward the development of the Yangtze River Delta region, thus creating a new growth engine in China's coastal regions.
