6,700 year ago, in the middle of the Neolithic
Age, this place was inhabited by some aboriginals. After
emperor Qinshihuang of the Qin Dynasty unified China,
Shenzhen was subordinate to Nanhai Prefecture. The name
Shenzhen can be traced back to 1410 AD according to
historical records. The name Shenzhen (deep ditch in
Chinese) derives from its location: it abounds in pools
and there is a deep gully beside the village.
With a modest origin as a tiny fishing village,
Shenzhen, one of the first cities to "open"
with the economic reforms, has miraculously become a
new modern city which developed in an all-around way
in the areas of industry and commerce, agriculture and
husbandry and real estate and tourism. Since the 1990s,
its high-tech industry has developed rapidly. Its revenue
and the total amount or exports and imports rank among
the best ones in the country.
Shenzhen is a show-case for China's reform
and openning-up. It absorbs the traditions and cultures
from all across the country. Its unique environment
enables Shenzhen to be a pioneering city in China. Shenzhen
also attaches significance to the natural ecology of
the city. This beautiful garden city is demonstrating
its unique vitality and future to the whole world.
