Boomtown marks Deng’s 110th birth anniversary
    2014-08-21  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    THIRTY-FOUR years ago Shenzhen was still a tiny border town yearning for drastic change, home to 30,000 residents, most of whom subsisted on fishing and farming.

    In 1980, Deng Xiaoping, chief architect of China’s policy of reform and opening up, named Shenzhen as a special economic zone (SEZ) to boldly carry out reforms. Four years after the zone was established, he paid a visit to the city during winter. In January 1992, at a crucial juncture of China’s reform and opening up, he made an influential inspection tour to South China and visited the city, where he delivered a series of speeches aimed at clarifying the muddled notion of whether the special economic zones was capitalist or socialist in nature. He stressed the importance of reform and said to local officials that they “should be bolder in carrying out reform and opening up, dare to make experiments and should not act like women with bound feet.”

    With years of hard work and the spirit of taking the first step, Shenzhen has now grown into a metropolis with at least 10.62 million permanent residents. Its economy soared an average 25.8 percent annually in the three decades after the SEZ’s establishment and the city’s GDP reached 1.45 trillion yuan (US$235.38 billion) in 2013.

    On the eve of the 110th anniversary of Deng’s birth, we present you with a group of the city’s past and current images to commemorate the chief architect of reform and opening up.(Tan Yifan)
