business, shipping and technological innovation, it’s also where
cultural heritages are well preserved and respected.

shanghai stands a scale model of Jiuqu bridge of Shanghai’s Yu Garden,
coupled with actual craftsmen showcasing skills that have been passed
along from generation to generation.

technology with a video that showcases the city's endless energy and
fast innovation.
