About Shenzhen

 

      Shenzhen (Chinese: 深圳) is a major city in the south of Southern China's Guangdong Province, situated immediately north of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The area became China's first—and one of the most successful—Special Economic Zones (SEZs). It currently also holds sub-provincial administrative status, with powers slightly less than a province. According to a report published by Shenzhen Daily in 2012, Shenzhen has a population of approximately 15 million. It's one of the most built-up areas in the world[citation needed] and the so-called Pearl River Delta Mega City had more than 44.7 million inhabitants at the 2010 census spread over 9 municipalities (including Macao) and an area of 17,573 km2.


     According to historical records, the name of Shenzhen can be traced back 1, 400 years during the Ming Dynasty. At that time, the local people named the drains in paddy fields "zhen". Shenzhen literally means "deep drains", with 'shen'  meaning 'deep', due to the area formerly being crisscrossed with waterways including many deep drains in the paddy fields. At the beginning of the Qing Dynasty, Shenzhen was formed as a township, and was then renamed Xin'an and Bao'an.


     Shenzhen, formerly known as Bao'an County, was promoted to a city of sub-provincial administrative status by the Chinese central government. In May 1980, it was formally nominated as a "Special Economic Zone" in China under the administration of the late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping. The once small fishing village of Shenzhen was created as an experimental ground of capitalism espousing "socialism with Chinese characteristics". Today, Shenzhen has become one of the economic powerhouses of China, as well as gaining a reputation as the largest manufacturing base in the world.


      Shenzhen's modern cityscape is the result of the vibrant economy made possible by rapid foreign investment since the institution of the policy of "reform and opening" establishment of the SEZ in late 1979, before which it was only a small village. Both Chinese citizens and foreign nationals have invested enormous amounts of money in the Shenzhen SEZ. More than US$30 billion in foreign investment has gone into both foreign-owned and joint ventures, at first mainly in manufacturing but more recently in the service industries as well.


      Shenzhen is now considered one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. Being southern mainland China's major financial center, Shenzhen is a home to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange as well as the headquarters of numerous high-tech companies. Shenzhen is also one of the busiest container ports in the world. In 2007, Shenzhen was named one of China's top ten most livable cities by Chinese Cities Brand Value Report, which was released at 2007 Beijing Summit of China Cities
