early 1990s.Lujiazui has
been developed specifically as a new financial district of Shanghai. The
decision to earmark Lujiazui for
this purpose reflects its location: it is located on the east side of the
Huangpu River in Pudong, and sits
directly across the river from the old financial and business district
of the Bund. Lujiazui is a national-level
development zone designated by the government. In 2005, the State Council
reaffirmed the positioning
of the 31.78 squ km Lujiazui area as the only finance and trade zone among
the 185 state-level development
zones in mainland China.
