Introduction to Pudong New Area
Lying in the east of Shanghai and at the east edge of the Yangtze River Delta, Pudong New Area (hereafter referred to as Pudong) is located at the estuary of the Yangtze River on the west side of the Pacific Ocean, connecting both Nanhui District and Minhang District in the south and looking on to the other side of the river where lie the districts of Xuhui, Luwan, Huangpu, Hongkou, Yangpu and Baoshan both in the north and west of Shanghai.

After twenty-two years of development, Pudong has become the engine of the economic and social development of Shanghai. With the ever-changing urban landscape, an outward-looking, multifunctional and modern new urban pattern has come into being. Known as "China's symbol of reform and opening up and epitome of Shanghai's modernization", Pudong has won the "National Civilized City" title, and so on.

Central Pudong is filled with new skyscrapers, office buildings and hotels and offices for over 2,000 foreign companies, including many in the Fortune 500. Among the factories there is $1.5 billion General Motors plant that churns out Buicks. On the far eastern end, about 32 kilometers from downtown Shanghai, is the new international airport connected to downtown Shanghai by the maglev train.
