Shantou Special Economic Zone

Shantou Special Economic Zone , located within Shantou, Guangdong, is one of the five special economic zones in the People's Republic of China.

Its establishment was approved by the State Council in 1981, when it then covered only the Longhu District. In November 1984, the special economic zone was expanded to cover the Guang'ao District, with a total area of 52.6 square kilometres. It was subsequently expanded in November 1991, with the approval of the State Council in April 1991, to 234 square kilometres, covering the entire urban area of Shantou.
