Shanghai (Chinese: Up River ), situated on the banks of the Yangtze River Delta in East China, is the largest city of the People's Republic of China, and the eighth largest in the world, with the city's 18 million, plus 13 million urban population. The citadel of China's modern economy, the city also serves as one of the nation's most important cultural, commercial, financial, industrial and communications centers.
Originally a fishing town, Shanghai became China's most important city (after the capital Beijing) by the twentieth century and became the third largest financial center in the world, ranking after New York City and London. Shanghai is the largest commercial city in the Far East, one of the world's busiest ports, and the largest cargo port in the world. Shanghai's skyscrapers and modern lifestyle are often seen as representing China's recent economic development and a compelling bid to become the world's next superpower. (more about Shanghai)
