Innovation highlighted in Pudong's development
November 20, 2020
Zhang Yuxiang has served in six positions in Pudong over the past 12 years. He has seen tremendous changes, but what he feels is most important to Pudong is innovation.
“I witnessed how a modern urban area is drawn on a blank canvas,” said Zhang, head of the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone Lujiazui Administration Bureau.
Zhangu began his career in Pudong in 2008 when he was appointed to lead the government research office. In 2012, three years after the former Nanhui District was merged with Pudong, he became head of Xinchang Town in suburban Nanhui. In 2014, he became head of Yangjing Subdistrict, not far from Lujiazui.
