Six years on, Shanghai FTZ bears fruit amid bolder reform
October 09, 2019
From the first batch of made-in-China Tesla to the first foreign-owned comprehensive hospital, the Shanghai free trade zone (FTZ) is advancing toward a higher level of openness since its establishment six years ago.
The Lingang area, the newly-launched section of the Shanghai FTZ, is "Tesla's dream city" in the eyes of Tao Lin, Tesla's Global Vice President.
Since the world-leading electric carmaker acquired a plot of land in Lingang last October, it has accomplished plant construction, equipment installation and testing within a year, heading towards the final stage of production and delivery.
