Fuzhou is the capital of Fujian province and has a population of 5.5 million. Its location on the lower reaches of the Min River, bordering on the Taiwan straits, means it has been an important port since the 10th century.

In the 15th century, Fuzhouís shipbuilders were the best in China and the city is considered to be the birthplace of the Chinese Navy. Fuzhou is also known for the skills of its artists and craftsmen whose products such as lacquerware and stone carvings were shipped to the world from the port.
