Shanghai is China's largest city in terms of urban population numbers; it lies in the Yangtze River Delta on the eastern coast of the country. History shows that Shanghai started off as a fishing and textile town, then served as a major administrative, trading and shipping area; its importance gained significant momentum during the 19th century mainly due to its ideal geographical position and economic potential. Today, Shanghai is prosperous, modern and is China’s most important financial center.
