Twenty-eight citizens are invited to celebrate the 28th anniversary of Pudong’s opening-up yesterday in Shanghai Tower.

On April 18, 1990, the central government announced the development and opening-up of Pudong, then little more than vast stretches of farmland. 

Roll on 28 years, the area has become a symbol of China’s rapid reform and opening-up. 

Pudong’s GDP rocketed nearly 161 times to 965 billion yuan (US$154 billion) last year. The value of Pudong’s foreign trade rose 363 times to hit US$312 billion in 2017, when its total fiscal revenue reached 394 billion yuan, 394 times the amount brought in during 1990.
