Shenzhen

Creative industry

In slightly less than three decades Shenzhen's urban population has grown from 94,000 (1980) to 8.3 million (2005) – roughly 80 percent of who are migrants. This annual growth rate of 19.6% is one of the fastest rates of population expansion registered by any city in the world. Shenzhen is one of the major megacities shaping China's urban future. Its population is expected to grow to more than 12 million by 2025. While the city's high-tech industries and financial sectors are modern, its land use, urban planning, and quality of life, for instance, show that the city is still in transition.
