Welcome to the Shanghai Government web site. With a history of more than 700 years, Shanghai was once the financial center of the Far East regions. Since the reforms that began in 1990s, great changes have taken place in the city. The municipal government is working towards building Shanghai into a modern metropolis and into a world economic, financial,trading and shipping center by 2020.
Today, I can feel the responsibility on my shoulders as the baton of leading Shanghai for further development is passed onto my hands. The power of the government is entrusted by the people; the interest of people is above all. Therefore at anytime, in any case, we shall always take the interest of people as the starting point and eventual goal of all our work.
