Huangdao District (simplified Chinese: 黄岛区; traditional Chinese: 黃島區; pinyin: Huángdǎo Qū; literally: "yellow island") is a district of Qingdao, People's Republic of China, located southwest and west of the main urban area of the city on the western shore of Jiaozhou Bay. It was identical to Qingdao Economic and Technological Development Zone (QETDZ) (simplified Chinese: 青岛经济技术开发区; traditional Chinese: 青島經濟技術開發區; pinyin: Qīngdǎo Jīngjì Jìshù Kāifāqū) which was launched in 1985 after the zone was merged with Huangdao District and set up the Free Trade Zone in 1992. In December 2012, neighbouring Jiaonan City was merged into Huangdao.[1]

The pillar industries engaged in the zone include electronics, household electric appliances, building materials, petrochemicals, machinery and pharmaceuticals.[2][3] It is connected via the Jiaozhou Bay Bridge.

Administrative divisions[edit]

Huangdao District is divided into 12 subdistricts and 11 more rural towns; the latter half of the current subdistricts and all towns were ceded from Jiaonan City.[4][5]
