Beyond the Bike Lesson Resource - Shenzhen's development

23rd May 2016

Here's another Beyond the Bike lesson resource for the week that will hopefully help to embed a real understanding of the nature of China's rapid development since 1979. In 1979, Shenzhen was a small fishing port, but today is a city of around 16m inhabitants with a reputation for entrepreneurial tech activity. This phenomenal growth has been achieved as a result of Shenzhen's designation as a Special Economic Zone.
