Foreigners are the Key in Turning Shenzhen into an International City
As Shenzhen aims to be an international city in the future the city should start inviting more foreigners to live and work in the city. During the 20th anniversary of Den Xiaoping, Robert Lawrence Kuhn said to turn Shenzhen into a international metropolis, Shenzhen must have a cultural melting pot with different people that will stimulate creativity. This is the kind of diversity the city needs to achieve its goal.
As of now Shenzhen is pioneering in the new ear of immigration in China, by allowing different people into the city. But to realize the dream of internationalization, Shenzhen should take a big step and start inviting foreigners to come to the city. To do this Shenzhen should set itself apart and find its niche in achieving the goal.
It is important to Shenzhen find several areas in which they can strive to become the best and set themselves ahead of their rivals. And since immigration culture is one of the city’s best characteristics, the city should concentrate more in finding ways to emphasize and develop this niche.
Once people sees this aspect, people will be attracted to the city and will start to come to work and live in Shenzhen, choosing it from other potential cities to live in.
