STUDY IN Sichuan

Why Sichuan




Sichuan, formerly romanized as Szechuan or Szechwan, is a province in southwest China occupying most of the Sichuan Basin and the easternmost part of the Tibetan Plateau between the Jinsha River on the west, the Daba Mountains in the north, and the Yungui Plateau to the south. Sichuan's capital city is Chengdu.

Geography

Sichuan Province, short for Shu, is situated in the southwest of China, embracing the eastern part of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and the Sichuan Basin. The province is 488,000 square km large with population 87.26 million (2007) consisting of different nationalities such as Han, Yi, Zang (Tibetan), Miao, Hui and Qiang. There are 32 cities, 3 minority nationality autonomous prefectures,  120 counties in Sichuan Province.

Climate

Sichuan Province has tremendous climatic difference resulting from the physical variation. In the eastern basin it is subtropical monsoon climate characterized by warm winter and hot summer, early spring and rainy autumn. It is wet and foggy and has little sunshine. The western part of Sichuan provinces has temperate or subtropical plateau climate, while the southern part of Sichuan shows marked variation in climates in the mountains and canyons. Frost-free period in the basin is 280-330 days per year, but on the plateau is only less than 90 days. The average annual precipitation of Sichuan province is 500-1200 mm, of which the basin has much larger share than the plateau.

History

Sichuan belong to the Kindoms of Ba and Shu.  After the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty unified China (221 B.C.), Shu and Ba Prefectures were set up in Sichuan. In 1001 (during the Song Dynasty) Sichuan was divided into four administrative zones -- Yizhoulu (for Chendu), Zizhoulu (for Santai), Lizhoulu (for Guangyuan) and Kuizhoulu (for Fengjie). These four Lu were called "four ravine lu" which is the origin of Sichuan (Sichuan in Chinese means "four ravines"). In the year of 1286 during the reign of Kublai Khan, the first emperor of the Yuan Dynasty, Sichuan was formally designated as a province.

Population and Nationalities

The majority of the province's population is Han Chinese (95% of provincial population), who are found scattered throughout the region with the exception of the far western areas. Thus, significant minorities of Tibetan, Yi, Qiang and Nakhi people reside in the western portion that are impacted by inclement weather and natural disasters, environmentally fragile, and impoverished. Sichuan's capital of Chengdu is home to a large community of Tibetans, with 30,000 permanent Tibetan residents and up to 200,000 Tibetan floating population.[65] The Eastern Lipo, included with either the Yi or the Lisu people, as well as the A-Hmao, also are among the ethnic groups of the provinces.

Economy

Sichuan has been historically known as the "Province of Abundance". It is one of the major agricultural production bases of China. Grain, including rice and wheat, is the major product with output that ranked first in China in 1999. Commercial crops include citrus fruits, sugar cane, sweet potatoes, peaches and grapes. Sichuan also had the largest output of pork among all the provinces and the second largest output of silkworm cocoons in 1999. Sichuan is rich in mineral resources. It has more than 132 kinds of proven underground mineral resources including vanadium, titanium, and lithium being the largest in China. The Panxi region alone possesses 13.3% of the reserves of iron, 93% of titanium, 69% of vanadium, and 83% of the cobalt of the whole country. Sichuan also possesses China's largest proven natural gas reserves, the majority of which is transported to more developed eastern regions.
