Kwang-chow Wan


Kwang-chow Wan
   Kwang-chow Wan was a port and coaling station in China’s south Kwantung province just north of Hainan Island. In 1898, France obtained a 99-year lease on the territory from the Chinese government on the same terms as Liaochow was held by Germany, Port Arthur by Russia, and Weihaiwei by Britain. The cession provided for full extraterritorial control of the jurisdiction for the duration of the lease, as well as a de facto acknowledgment of a French sphere of influence in the southern provinces of Kwantung, Kwangsi, and Yunnan. In 1900, Kwang-chow Wan was placed under the jurisdiction of the governor-general of Indochina, who appointed a civil administrator for the territory.
