The prefecture-level city of Dongying administers 5 , including 2 and 3 .
These are further divided into 43 , including 23 , 13 and 7 subdistricts.
The city was established in 1983, as a base for developing the Yellow River Delta and China's second largest oilfield, Shengli Field. The oilfield was discovered in 1964 near a small village called Dongying, which gave its name to the city.
Dongying is located on the banks of the Yellow River Delta. It has an area of 7,923 .
A large part of the city's economy revolves around petroleum and the nearby Shengli Oil Field.
Industries include: petroleum, petrochemistry, saline chemistry, papermaking, machinery, electronics, construction, building materials, foodstuff processing, pneumatic tires and rubber, textile and light industries.
Dongying is one of the world's leading producers of rubber tires. It has more tire factories than any other city in the world.
Recently, Dogying's economy has grown significantly, reflecting the high development of china's economy. The city's growing manufacturing sector and its proximity to oil reserves have led to increased company investments. An example is DuPont - in 2005, Dupont invested 5 billion yuan to build a factory in the area. After this project's completion, it will become the largest investment outside of the US for Dupont.
Dongying is home to one major University, China University of Petroleum, as well as several colleges and technical schools.
