About the region

The economic epicenter of the new China

As the leading business hub of this fast-evolving country, Shanghai has been described as the “showpiece” city of China’s booming economy. In 2018, Shanghai hosted the China International Import Expo (CIIE), the world’s first import-themed national-level expo, which reflected the city’s strong focus on developing commerce. Shanghai is also developing a reputation as a cultural center, and regularly hosts international events such as Shanghai Fashion Week and the Chinese Formula One Grand Prix. That ties in with the city’s rich history, represented by historic buildings such as the City God Temple, Yu Garden and the China Pavilion.
