Part of the Research Series on the Chinese Dream and China’s Development Path book series (RSCDCDP)


This paper follows three basic consensuses about the “new normal” and China’s developmental stage corresponding to it, provides a logical analysis of the historical evolution, economic transformation and institutional changes of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone, and discusses the developmental characteristics of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone under the “new normal” to put forward suggestions for the choice of a path—pursuing a two-stage, three-level coordinated development, keeping a reasonable range of gap between the secondary and tertiary industries, and fostering the common development of multiple market players.
