In northeastern China, the city of Fouchouin lies in the province of Leyonging. It is separated by 45 kilometers from Cheyenne, the capital city of the province. The city district occupies the area along the Hui Huynhui River. His land stretched from west to east for about 30 kilometers. The founding year of Fouchouin is considered 1384. At that time, the capital of the ancient Mongolian country was Late Yongyang.

The first settlements of todays city existed in 108 A.D. In the eighth century, it was the site of a foreign border crossing. From ancient times the area was known for its mineral deposits, which were discovered 2,000 years ago. Thats why, since ancient times, Fawn has been known as “Coal City.

The extensive development of the coal deposits began in 1902. At that time, the Russians began to actively produce useful mineral resources for supplying the Chinese Eastern Railway with coal at the Foshunka Spit. It was at the beginning of the 20th century that the city rapidly developed and soon became an important center of the countrys fuel industry. The citys further development and prosperity was hindered by Japanese occupation, which lasted for a long period from 1931 to 1945. It wasnt until the mid-20th century that Fouchoune regained its former glory. Most of the new construction is to the west of the citys territory, because the other directions either lack free land or are obstructed by mountain elevations. Because of the ongoing development of the western territories, the new areas of Foshun are closely connected to the city of Shenyang. As a result, they formed an agglomeration.

The city district is mining shale minerals and mining open pits. Metal smelting plant and aluminum smelter are also in operation. The chemical, mechanical engineering, and mechanical engineering industries have developed. The city has inherited architectural features of historic value from a bygone era, in particular the ancient Haoirschunn pagoda.
