Pudong New District
Roughly speaking, Shanghai is composed of two large parts: Puxi and Pudong, which are separated by the Huangpu River. Conventionally, downtown Shanghai used to refer to Puxi only, which lies to the west of the Huangpu River.
Located in the east part of Shanghai, the Pudong New District has a total area of 523 sq. km. and a permanent resident population of over 1.5 million.
About 20 years ago, in Pudong there were no modern buildings, no modern roads, no modern shops, only boundless farmland, low and simple houses, and numerous winding streams and rivers. Now everything has changed. So, it is no wonder that even those who were born and lived in Pudong long ago find it hard to recognize their home villages. In April 1990, the Chinese government decided to develop Pudong. Since then tremendous changes have taken place. Today, Pudong has become an area with the best investment environment and the best opportunity for investors in both China and world.
