Shenzhen, also known as Pengcheng, is a city under separate state planning in Guangdong Province, the People's Republic of China. It is one of the four first-tier cities in China and one of the central cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Located on the east bank of the Pearl River Estuary, bordering Daya Bay and Dapeng Bay on the east, Lingdingyang on the west, Hong Kong on the south, Huizhou City and Dongguan City on the north, China's special economic zone and international city approved by the State Council is one of the megacities of the People's Republic of China. The municipal government is located in the Shenzhen Civic Center on Fuzhong 2nd Road.


In January 1979, Shenzhen was established on the basis of the former Baoan County. In August 1980, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress approved the establishment of China's first special economic zone, the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone, in Shenzhen. Shenzhen has developed rapidly due to reform and opening up, and has jumped from a border agricultural county to a first-tier city in the country. In 2016, Shenzhen surpassed Guangzhou to become the third largest city in mainland China in terms of economic output. In the list of global cities released by GaWC in 2020, Shenzhen once again entered the Alpha-level, ranking 46th, and it is also one of the six world first-tier cities (Alpha-level) selected in Greater China. The Shenzhen Metropolitan Area, which consists of Shenzhen City (including the Shenzhen-Shantou Special Cooperation Zone), the entire area of Dongguan City, and parts of Huizhou City, is one of the metropolitan areas with the strongest economic strength in South China and even the whole country.


High-tech industry, financial industry, modern logistics industry, and cultural and creative industry are the four pillar industries of Shenzhen. Shenzhen is an important high-tech R&D and manufacturing base in southern China, often referred to as "China's Silicon Valley". The container throughput of Shenzhen Port ranks third in the world for many years in a row, and the total foreign trade export volume ranks first in mainland China for more than 20 consecutive years. Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport is the fifth largest civil aviation airport in China. The number of initial public offerings on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange ranked first in the world from 2009 to 2015, and it is an important financing platform for Chinese companies. Shenzhen is one of the national comprehensive supporting reform pilot areas. In 2019, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council supported Shenzhen in building a pilot demonstration area of socialism with Chinese characteristics, which undertakes the important mission of experimentation and demonstration in China's institutional innovation and expansion of opening up. .
