Brief City History
Liuzhou has a history of more than 2,100 years. The city was founded in 111 B.C. when it was known as Tanzhong ( ‘”Centre of Deep Pool”‘). In 742 A.D. it became known as Longcheng ( ‘”Dragon City”‘), after the Long River, before finally changing to Liuzhou ( ‘”Willow Prefecture”‘) after the Liu River in 1736. Liuzhou, Wade-Giles romanization Liu-chou, formerly Mapping, city, central Zhuang Autonomous Region of Guangxi, southern China. Liuzhou, the second-largest city in Guangxi, is a natural communication centre, is situated at the confluence of several tributaries that form the Liu River, which flows southward into a tributary of the Xi River. In contemporary times Liuzhou has become the focus of a highway system and is linked by rail north-eastward to Guilin and Hengyang (in Hunan), south-westward to Nanning and the Vietnamese border at Pingxiang, north-westward to Guiyang (in Guizhou province) and Chongqing, northward to Huaihua and Zhangjiajie (both in Hunan), and south-eastward to the port of Zhanjiang (in Guangdong province).
Until comparatively recent centuries, the area was occupied by non-Han Chinese peoples. The county of Tanzhong was founded there in the 1st century BCE; it was renamed Mapping in 591 and became the seat of a prefecture under the Tang dynasty (618–907) and of a superior prefecture (Liuzhou) after 1368. However, during most of the Ming period (1368–1644), it was little more than a frontier garrison and trading post, often used as a place of exile. Only in the 17th century did the area become dominated by Chinese settlers. Liuzhou has always been a center for the collection of agricultural products, timber, and vegetable and tung oil from north-central Guangxi and southern Guizhou and has had handicraft industries based on local products. It has been renowned for the production of coffins as well as for papermaking, tobacco curing, and textile manufacturing. There are also plants for oil extraction and grain milling. Since 1949 there has been considerable industrial expansion and diversification, and Liuzhou has become the most important industrial city and the economic center of the province. Among the first of these enterprises were large lumber-processing and woodworking factories and chemical plants (extracting sulfur and producing alcohol). Liuzhou developed a large engineering industry, producing agricultural machinery and gasoline and diesel engines, as well as a locomotive repair works. In the late 1950s a steel and iron plant was built, using rich local iron ores and coal from the Heshan mines (on the railway to the south). In the 1960s Liuzhou, in addition to becoming a major manufacturer of tractors, also built a large fertilizer plant and began to produce cement. More-recent industrial development includes plants manufacturing automobiles, textiles, nonferrous metals, food, construction equipment, and electrical machinery. There are a large thermal power station in the city and several hydroelectric installations in the district. In addition to being a rail and highway hub, Liuzhou has daily air service connecting it with other major cities in the country. Pop. (2002 est.) city, 830,515; (2007 est.) urban agglom, 1,497,000.
