Wade-Giles romanization  Chin-hua , also spelled  Kinhwa 

      city, central Zhejiang (Chekiang) sheng (province), China. Jinhua is the natural centre of the eastern half of the Jin-Qu (Jinhua-Quzhou) Basin, being situated at the junction of two of the tributaries of the Wu (Jinhua) River—the Dongyang River and the Wuyi River. It is also a junction on the railway from Hangzhou to Nanchang in Jiangxi province and from Jinhua to Wenzhou in the southeast and Qiandaohu in the northwest.

      From the 2nd century BCE the place was a county subordinated to Kuaiji (now called Shaoxing). Its name was first changed to Jinhua in 562. Under the Tang dynasty (618–907) it became the seat of Wu prefecture. From the 14th century it became the superior prefecture of Jinhua. It reverted to county status in 1912.

      The present city was rebuilt and walled in 1352. Traditionally, it has been a prosperous commercial centre of a rich rice-producing area and a collecting hub for agricultural and forestry products. Before World War II, there developed a large trade in bamboo, timber, various types of vegetable and tree oils, and wine. In addition, the area became famous for its special breeds of black hogs, and Jinhua ham has remained a local specialty known throughout China. On the basis of its convenient access to transportation routes and to agricultural produce and other products from the surrounding rural areas, Jinhua has developed a number of important industries, including food processing and the manufacture of textiles, machinery, and chemicals. Pop. (2002 est.) 274,267.
