Know More about Shenzhen
Located in Guangdong Province of China, Shenzhen is a modern metropolis city. Granted with a sub-provincial administrative status, it is located to the immediate north of the special administrative region of Hong Kong. Being a sub-province, Shenzhen holds powers a little less than that of a province.
Prior to being promoted with a city status in 1979, Shenzhen used to be a small market town with a population of just about 30,000 residents located on the route of Kowloon–Canton Railway. In 1980, Shenzhen became the first city in China to be designated with a status of Special Economic Zone (SEZ).
Today, the city boasts of a population of approximately 10.8 million people with its metropolitan area’s population exceeding 18 million. Shenzhen use to be amongst the fastest developing cities in the world in the 90s and 2000s. The city’s population boom got a check by less than one percent in a year by 2013 as the growth of the manufacturing industry declined in favor of the other industries.
The vibrant and diverse economy of Shenzhen is what led to rapid foreign investment since the city began operating according to the policy of “reform and opening” establishment of the Special Economic Zones in late 1979.
Shenzhen is home to headquarters of many multi-national companies as well as the Shenzhen Stock Exchange. A prominent financial center of southern China, Shenzhen was placed 19th in the list of Global Financial Centers Index in the year 2016. The city also houses one of the busiest container ports across the globe.
