In the past two decades, more than $30-billion has been invested by outsiders in Shenzhen building factories and forming joint ventures.
In the early 1980s, Shenzhen was designated a Special Economic Zone (SEZ), to be a buffer zone between Hong Kong and the rest of mainland China. Currently it has a population of approximately 8 million, compare to only 30 thousand in the 1980s.
Shenzhen is the first of the Special Economic Zones (SEZ) of China. It was originally established in 1979 due to its proximity to Hong Kong. The location was chosen to attract industrial investments from Hong Kong since the two places share
the same language, dialect and culture. The concept proved to be a great success, propelling the further opening up of China and continuous economic reform. Shenzhen eventually became one of the largest cities in the Pearl River Delta region which is one of the economic powerhouses of China and is the largest manufacturing base,especially,in electronic field, in the world.

Its comprehensive economic capacity ranks among the top of big cities in the country. The combined value of imports and exports has remained No.1 for 12 years in a row.
Shenzhen owns the most dynamic economic development in China, which should be attributed to its well-built market economy and a diversified culture of migration. The three pillar industries, namely high-tech, modern logistics, and financial service,
