Shanghai Lujiazui Financial City lies directly across the river from the Bund - the old financial and business district of Shanghai - just south of the confluence of Suzhou Creek and the Huangpu River. 

Lujiazui Financial City is a leading financial and commercial district in China and has become the most attractive place in Shanghai. It is home to iconic skyscrapers such as the Oriental Pearl Tower, Shanghai International Convention Center, and the Shanghai World Financial Center. The towering skyscrapers create a city forest-like atmosphere.

In recent years, Lujiazui Financial City has committed itself to high-quality development. Notably, the building economy has burst with highly anticipated vitality, guiding 113 buildings, each generating a tax revenue of 100 million yuan ($13.8 million). Official statistics show that in 2022, the annual economic aggregate exceeded 630 billion yuan, becoming a significant  economic growth pole for Pudong New Area and Shanghai.


The entire financial city covers an area of 31.78 square kilometers containing 285 business buildings and skyscrapers with more than 40,000 enterprises. As the only national-level development zone named "finance and trade" in China, it is also the core functional area of Shanghai's International Financial Center.

Lujiazui is adjacent to the Jinqiao Development Zone, Zhangjiang Science City, and the Expo Area. The area enjoys unique geographical advantages and a broad development space. The neighboring Pudong International Airport connects it with countries and regions around the world. Lujiazui is also near the Waigaoqiao Port Area, opening it to many essential port cities around the world.
