Shenzhen was one of the fastest-growing cities in the world during the 1990s and the 2000s. Shenzhen's population boom slowed down to less than one percent per year by 2013 as the manufacturing boom ebbed in favor of other industries. Shenzhen's modern cityscape is the result of its vibrant economy made possible by rapid foreign investment since the institution of the policy of "reform and opening" establishment of the SEZ in late 1979. Shenzhen is a major financial center in southern China. The city is home to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange as well as the headquarters of numerous high-tech companies. Shenzhen ranks 19th in the 2016 edition of the Global Financial Centres Index published by the Z/Yen Group and Qatar Financial Centre Authority. It also has one of the busiest container ports in the world.

It will become the nation's third special economic zone after Shenzhen and Shanghai,... and take on some of the role Beijing plays today. The designated zone currently covers about 100 square kilometers but will be expanded to two-thousand,... making it even larger than Shenzhen, one of China's richest cities. Local residents are overjoyed at the news. "We are very excited. I hope the environment and the economy here will be better in the future." Real estate agencies in the region are being flooded with inquiries from potential buyers,... and increased demand has more than doubled real estate prices in the area. "One square meter was worth three-thousand Yuan a month ago,... but it rose to six-thousand. We can't buy anything even with ten-thousand Yuan." Responding to such sharp increases,... the local government has temporarily suspended property transactions. Although no detailed plans have been announced yet,... the Chinese government is already facing the daunting task of dealing with surging speculative real estate investment.

“In the 1950s, the people’s way of life was just as farmers,” 65-year-old Zhuang Tiefeng explained, standing on a roof pointing to areas of land now occupied by large city buildings. “After the opening up and reforms, Shuiwei village had experienced huge changes. The old way of farming gave way to new industry and business and we were given city IDs.” In 1979, Shuiwei was incorporated into the new city of Shenzhen as part of a government drive to establish special economic zones around China. Shenzhen now houses a population of over 10 million people and is widely considered one of the world’s fastest growing cities. Much of its success has come from foreign and domestic investments into new manufacturing plants. Special economic zones were established in three other cities- Shantou, Zhuhai, Xiamen as well as the whole island of Hainan following the 3rd plenary session of the 11th CPC Central Committee in 1978. It was a move that started a boom in foreign investment into China and the rapid growth of coastal cities. For Zhuang Tiefeng, who grew up in Shuiwei in a simple farming community, not all the changes have been positive. “The disadvantage is the young teenagers have a comfortable life and lack strong ambition. Their lives may be too comfortable.” But when looking to the future, Zhuang is optimistic, “new technology and high speed trains will connect us better to the rest of China and the world. I don’t like to guess the future but I feel it is bright.”
