In 1996, Guangzhou’s export was about 60 percent higher than that of Tianjin, although Tianjin acquired 15 percent more foreign capital than Guangzhou for the first time. Guangzhou was also ahead of Tianjin in freight and passenger traffic and the volume of post and telecommunications. 13 The volume of cargo handled by Guangzhou port had jumped seven times between 1978 and 1995, the highest increase among China’s principal seaports. 14 Guangzbou is not only the provincial capital of one the most prosperous provinces in China, but also a pivotal regional cultural, communication, and economic center.

Before his transfer to Tianjin, he was a governor in Jilin and later Minister of Forestry. Similarly, Zhang was a Hebei native born in 1939 who spent his entire career in Tianjin, especially in the metallurgical sector. Even when he was a vice-mayor of Tianjian in 1985, he was made an alternative member of the Twelfth CC.

Although he was appointed a member of the Politburo in 1987 and later a member of its standing committee in 1989, he was not a powerful politician at the central level. He was made Chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference in 1993, a united front organ, hence his position in the Center did not immediately bring a great deal of benefit to Tianjin. None of the leaders who came after Li Ruihuan was able to achieve political influence or popularity comparable to their predecessor.
