Tang Yijun (Chinese: 唐一军; pinyin: Táng Yījūn; born March 1961) is a Chinese politician, and the current Minister of Justice. He formerly served as Governor of northeast China's Liaoning province. Prior to his transfer to Liaoning in October 2017, he spent his entire career in Zhejiang province. He was the mayor, then party chief of Ningbo.


Tang is considered native to Ju County, Shandong, but spent most of his life in Zhejiang. He joined the workforce in July 1977, working for communes in Qingtian County, Yongkang County, and Lishui County, shortly after the death of Mao. Between 1980 and 1984, shortly after economic reforms began, Tang was a clerical worker at the Lishui party school; he was admitted to the Zhejiang party school in 1984, and was assigned work in the propaganda department of Zhejiang.

In October 1985, Tang joined the Chinese Communist Party. In 1991, Tang began working for the General Office of the Zhejiang party committee under Li Zemin. In July 1997, he became secretary-general of the Zhoushan party organization. In June 2002, he was named secretary-general of the Zhejiang Commission for Discipline Inspection. In June 2005, he was named deputy party chief and Discipline Inspection secretary of Ningbo. In February 2010, he became the chief of the Political and Legal Affairs Commission of Ningbo. In February 2011, he was named chairman of the Ningbo People's Political Consultative Conference.[1]

In May 2016, Tang was named mayor of Ningbo.[2] In August 2016, he became Communist Party Secretary of Ningbo and a member of the Zhejiang provincial party standing committee.[3] In May 2017, Tang was named deputy party chief of Zhejiang province. He served in the role for five months before being appointed as acting governor of Liaoning in October 2017.[4] On April 29, 2020, he was appointed Minister of Justice, replacing Fu Zhenghua.[5]
