Jiaocheng (Chinese: 蕉城区; pinyin: Jiāochéng; Foochow Romanized: Ciĕu-siàng) is a district of Ningde, Fujian province, PRC. Also called Ningde Shiqu (宁德市区 - Ningde Centre), the district seats the municipality's executive, legislature and judiciary, together with its Communist Party and Public Security Bureau.

The district oversees two Street committees (jiedao, 街道), one Development zone (kaifa-qu, 开发区), ten towns (zhen, 镇) and four townships (xiang, 乡), of which one is zoned Affirmative action-like for the native She people.[2]
