Before 1990, Pudong was mainly farmland and countryside. In 1993, the Chinese government decided to turn the area into a Special Economic Zone and the western tip of the Pudong district was designated to be the new financial hub of modern China called the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone.
Several landmark buildings were constructed during the 1990s to raise the image and awareness of Shanghai and China. These include the Oriental Pearl Tower, the Jin Mao Building, the Shanghai World Financial Centre Tower, and many more.
