Molybdenum , zinc , iron , crude oil and natural gas are used as resources . There is rich fruit growing and fishing . Due to the many historical goods and also the large number of sandy beaches, there is some tourism in Huludao.

There is a large shipyard in Huludao. All nuclear submarines of the classes Han , Xia , Shang and Jin were and are being built there. For this reason, too, Huludao was closed to foreigners until 1996. The Hamburg shipping company FHBertling placed the order for the construction of 4 ships. These were the first civilian ships intended for export at this shipyard.


Part of the Great Wall of China runs in the area of Lijiabao Municipality (Gemeinde Gemeinde) through Suizhong County and ends at the Shanhai Pass at Shanhaiguan by the sea. At Jiumenkou , where it crosses a river, you will find the only part of the wall that runs through water. This place has been a frequent location for combat throughout history.
