Embark on a New Life in Tianjin

While banking, financial services, and farming are important industries in Tianjin, manufacturing is the largest and fastest-growing sector with petrochemicals, textiles, metalworking, mechanical industries, and automotive manufacturing leading the way. Other industries include IT, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals while the new port area is attracting interest from international corporations such as Toyota and Motorola. English teachers are also in demand and for many jobs it is not essential to speak Mandarin. Experience stunning views from the Tianjin Eye, explore the enormous Tianjin Museum or the bright lights of the Jinwan Plaza housing lively restaurants, bars, and pubs. For history lovers there is a section of the Great Wall that passes the city and the Tianjin Ancient Culture Street plays host to the 14th-century Tianhou Palace.
