Once a fishing and textile town, Shanghai
grew in importance in the 19th century due to its favorable
port location and was one of the cities opened to foreign
trade by the 1842 Treaty of Nanjing. The city then flourished
as a centre of commerce between east and west, and became
a multinational hub of finance and business in the 1930s.
In 1990, the economic reforms introduced by Deng Xiaoping
resulted in an intense re-development of the city, aiding
the return of finance and foreign investment to the
city. Shanghai is now aiming to be a global finance
hub and international shipping centre in the future,
and is predicted to become one of the world's main global
financial centres, on the level of even London and New
York in this regard.
Shanghai is also a popular tourist destination
renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund,
Peoples Square (the former racing track) and Yuyuan
Garden, and its extensive yet growing Pudong skyline.
It hosted the World Expo in 2010, attracting 73 million
visitors. It is described as the "showpiece"
of the booming economy of China.
