Known as the “Pearl of the Shali River,” National Luohe Economic and Technological Development Zone was set up in 1992 and upgraded into a national one under the approval of the State Council in January 2010. Covering a total planning area of 41 square kilometers, the zone governs 34 administrative villages with a population of nearly 100,000. 

Sitting in the southeast of Luohe, Henan province, the zone enjoys favorable geographic location and a convenient transportation network. Beijing-Guangzhou Railway and Luohe-Fuyang Railway meet in the zone, while the Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau Expressway and Nanjing-Luoyang Expressway also pass through, making it part of the Central Plains Economic Zone.

Forty provincial high-tech enterprises and 45 high-tech products are also located in the zone, accounting for 71.4 percent of the total number in the city.

Over years of development, a characteristic industrial system has taken shape in the zone, led by four industrial groups, namely organic food, hydraulic hose manufacturing, non-metallic materials, and modern services.. 

In the first nine months of 2018, its general public budget revenue reached 483 million yuan ($71.4 million), up 14.8 percent year-on-year. The gross output value of industries above a designated size totaled 29.6 billion yuan, up 11.5 percent. The zone’s actual use of foreign capital was $175.16 million, ranking first in the city.
