Zaozhuang , Wade-Giles romanization Tsao-chuang. city, southern Shandong sheng (province), eastern China. The city includes an extensive area on the western flank of the southwestern spur of the Shandong Hills, to the east of the Grand Canal. that contains one of the most important coal-mining districts of eastern China. The coal deposits, which are of high-quality bituminous coal, suitable for coking, are connected with those of Jiawang and Xuzhou in northern Jiangsu sheng .

The mines were developed before World War II, and much of the production was distributed by rail and on the canal to the Yangtze River (Chang Jiang) valley. Under the Japanese occupation, coal production was increased, but, during the latter part of World War II, the mines were seriously damaged and ceased production.

The Zaozhuang mines were not brought back into production until 1954, when they were extensively modernized and mechanized. Soon they had equaled—and then exceeded—prewar production. The nearby town of Hanzhuang, which has also been a mining centre since the early 1960s, lies south of Zaozhuang on the Grand Canal. In addition to mining, other important economic activities in the region include electric-power generation and the manufacture of building materials, chemicals, metallurgical products, textiles, and machinery. A branch rail line links the city with the Beijing-Shanghai trunk line at Xuecheng, a district within the city of Zaozhuang. The Beijing-Fuzhou expressway also passes through the area. Pop. (2002 est.) city, 733,080; (2007 est.) urban agglom. 2,145,000.
