Nanjing, the capital city of Jiangsu Province on the eastern coast of China, has been recognized as the country’s first "Renowned Software City" by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

When Nanjing formed a software industrial plan in 2005 with the goal of becoming "A Renowned Software City of China" and having a total annual software income of 100 billion yuan, the total income from Nanjing's software industry was only 16.6 billion yuan.

In 2009, however, Nanjing's income from the software industry reached 63.2 billion yuan, and the city had 1,400 software enterprises and 4,347 registered software products. The number of the city’s excellent software products has ranked first in China for three successive years.

In the first half of 2010, Nanjing's income from the software industry reached 43 billion yuan, already quite close to its goal of an annual software income of 100 billion yuan.
