East China


East China

East China (zh-stp|s=华东|t=華東|p=Huádōng) is a geographical and a loosely-defined cultural region that covers the eastern coastal area of China.

Although an intangible and loosely defined concept, for administrative and governmental purposes, the region is defined by the government of the People's Republic of China to include the provinces of (in alphabetical order) Anhui, parts of Fujian, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Shandong and Zhejiang, as well as the municipality of Shanghai.

The PRC lays claim over the Taiwan Province and parts of Fujian (also spelt Fukien or Fuchien), which are also defined as part of eastern China by the PRC. However, they are administered by the Republic of China.
