Innovate Shenzhen

Innovate Shenzhen

The trade war between the U.S. and China has thrust a city named Shenzhen, just a short drive north of Hong Kong, into the global spotlight. Forty years ago, Shenzhen was a small, impoverished fishing village on the southern coast of China. Today, it’s home to more than 12 million residents and is China’s tech startup hub. Once a city known as the "factory of the world", Shenzhen is increasingly where China’s artificial intelligence, robotics, and green energy companies set up shop, from massive firms to tiny startups. Matt Rivers explores some of the unique and emerging technology breakthroughs developed by those companies, detailing the rise of China’s economy through the prism of its own “Silicon Valley”.
