Fogang County (Chinese: 佛冈县; pinyin: Fógāng Xiàn) is a county of north-central Guangdong province, People's Republic of China. It is under the administration of Qingyuan City, and is connected to major cities in Guangdong by public highways and toll roads. The closest aviation hub is Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN).

Fogang comprises a central township and numerous satellite villages, and has a total population of around 300,000. Agriculture remains a significant contributor to the County's economy, with fruits, vegetables and grains being grown by local farmers and entrepreneurs.[citation needed]

In recent years, the county has experienced steady growth in size and population, accompanied by rapid economic development. Industrial zones have been established outside the township, with textiles among the main factory products.[citation needed]
