Huangdao and Xihai'an, officially known as Huangdao District (Chinese: 黄岛区) and Xihai'an New Area (Chinese: 西海岸新区), also known as Qingdao West Coast is a district and a state-level new area of Qingdao, Shandong, China, located southwest and west of the main urban area of the city on the western shore of Jiaozhou Bay. It was identical to Qingdao Economic and Technological Development Zone (QETDZ, simplified Chinese: 青岛经济技术开发区; traditional Chinese: 青島經濟技術開發區; pinyin: Qīngdǎo Jīngjì Jìshù Kāifā Qū), which was launched in 1985 after the zone was merged with Huangdao District and set up the Free Trade Zone in 1992. In December 2012, neighbouring Jiaonan city was merged into Huangdao.[1]

The pillar industries engaged in the zone include electronics, household electric appliances, building materials, petrochemicals, machinery and pharmaceutical drugs.[2][3] It is connected via the Jiaozhou Bay Bridge.

In mid 2018, the Ministry of Civil Affairs approved the consolidation of Huangdao District Government and Xihai'an New Area Government into a single governing body, which became the fourth administrative state-level new areas after Pudong of Shanghai; Binhai of Tianjin; and Nansha of Guangzhou. The population was 1.71 million in 2014.
