The City – Shenzhen
Shenzhen is located in the Greater Bay Area and connects directly to Hong Kong. The Greater Bay Area consists of eleven cities with a combined population of 66 million people. It’s the most important hightech region in China. The city is the home of some of China’s biggest and most renowned tech giants from Huawei to Tencent (Wechat). Airbus also selected Shenzhen as the site of its China Aviation Research Center as Apple did for its Research and Development Center. One of the hugest PHP developer communities is also based in Shenzhen. Once seen as heaven for cheap manufacturing and knock-offs, Shenzhen is today a mecca for entrepreneurs, innovators and tech firms, also for software and mobile technology.
The need for the Chinese and global innovation economies, companies and ecosystems to connect and synergise, is obvious. And so it is the perfect place for Meet Magento.
