Shanghai FTZ wins top honor in Asia Pacific Region

Shanghai Free Trade Zone was named among the Top Free Zones in Asia Pacific Region by Site Selection magazine, the official publication of the Industrial Asset Management Council, recently.

Chen Xi, deputy director of Shanghai FTZ Administration, met Adam Jones Kelley, president of IAMC and expressed his gratitude for the zone winning the award. He hoped the zone can have more exchanges and establish cooperation with other FTZs in the world through IAMC.

Chen said the award is a global recognition for the achievements and reforms the zone has made, and he told his guests that the FTZ is working hard to build free trade port and he welcomed Kelley to make investments in Pudong New Area.

Kelley spoke highly of the achievements of the Shanghai FTZ, and said that he has witnessed the changes Shanghai has gone through since the 1980s. He would often refer to the successful cases of investment in the zone while introducing free trade zones. Next, IAMC will connect Shanghai FTZ with other FTZs and free trade ports in the world.

At the end of the meeting, Kelley presented the award to Chen.
