Huang Ju (黄菊, py: Huáng Jú) (born September 1939) is a Vice Premier of the People's Republic of China. He is ranked 6th out of 9 in the Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China. With very close relations with his patron Jiang Zemin, he is considered a member of the "Shanghai clique".
Huang became mayor of Shanghai in 1991 and then city's Party chief in 1994, which he served until October 2002.
Huang is widely regarded as being unremarkable as a leader and lacking an impressive track record, owing his rise to power to Jiang Zemin.
