Located on the edge of Hong Kong, Shenzhen is still largely rural in the 1970s. In 1980, part of its territory acquires the status of special economic zone and becomes one of the main places of experimentation of the policy of opening to Foreign investments.

In 2010, it has about 10 million inhabitants and is one of the richest municipalities in China. It is part of the Chinese megalopolis of the Pearl River Delta.
