Located at the midpoint of China’s coastline, Shanghai stands at the estuary of the Yangtze River. As early as the 1930–40s, Shanghai had already developed into China’s largest industrial and commercial city and its economic hub.

This book reviews the evolution of various industries in Shanghai over the past century and also elaborates on their current status. It also looks ahead to the future and examines the numerous opportunities for local and international investors.
