Baoshan District

In the northern part of Shanghai, Baoshao District is at the convergence point of the Huangpu River and the Yangtze River. It is the birthplace of Shanghai's port opening, more than a century ago. From the completion of China's first railway to the establishment of BaoSteel ― China's largest modern iron-steel enterprise; from the entry of Shanghai University to the holding of Baoshan International Folk Art Festival, over many years Baoshan has developed into an eye-catching, key supporting point in Shanghai's economic development today by relying on its favorable riverfront and seaside location and deep-rooted humanistic foundation.
