Abstract

This paper summarizes the status of the social and economic development of the Shantou Special Economic Zone in 2016 and the problems it faced. In 2016, the economy of the Shantou Special Economic Zone was generally better than the average level of Guangdong Province and it performed well. It also had some problems such as unbalanced development and excessive dependence on fixed asset investments. The government played a key role in promoting its economic development. This paper also introduces the establishment and development of the Shantou Overseas Chinese Economic and Cultural Cooperation Pilot Zone. As a new attempt to promote the overseas Chinese economy, the cooperation pilot zone reflects the characteristics of the Shantou Special Economic Zone, and its future development deserves our attention.
