Shanghai ou Chang-hai (en mandarin 上海 ; pinyin : Shànghǎi ; shanghaïen : zanhe, prononcé [zɑ̃.‘he], « sur la mer ») est la ville la plus peuplée de Chine, et une des plus denses avec 2 804 habitants au kilomètre carré (en 2006). L’émergence de la ville comme centre financier de l’Asie-Pacifique, au XIXe siècle et au XXe siècle s’est faite dans la douleur, avec l’occupation étrangère de la ville pendant plusieurs décennies. Dans les années 1920 et 1930, Shanghai a été le théâtre d’un formidable essor culturel qui a beaucoup contribué à l’aura mythique et fantasmatique qui est associée à la ville depuis cette époque. Après la fondation de la République de Chine et la guerre sino-japonaise (1937-1945), l’avènement de la République populaire de Chine a muselé la ville économiquement et culturellement, considérée comme un foyer de bourgeois et de dépravation, jusqu’à ce que Deng Xiaoping en 1992 décide de promouvoir le développement de la ville. Il semble aujourd’hui que la ville soit en passe de retrouver la place de centre financier de l’Asie qu’elle occupait auparavant. Sa croissance à deux chiffres, les 16,7 millions d’habitants de sa région urbaine, sa mutation cosmopolite et son essor culturel l’appellent à devenir une métropole mondiale, aux côtés de New York, Londres ou Paris. Elle accueillera l’Exposition universelle en 2010.

Shanghai (Chinese: 上海) is the largest city in China, and one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, with over 20 million people. Located on China’s central eastern coast at the mouth of the Yangtze River, the city is administered as a municipality of the People’s Republic of China with province-level status. Originally a fishing and textiles town, Shanghai grew to importance in the 19th century due to its favorable port location and as one of the cities opened to foreign trade by the 1842 Treaty of Nanking. The city flourished as a center of commerce between east and west, and became a multinational hub of finance and business by the 1930s. However, Shanghai’s prosperity was interrupted after the 1949 Communist takeover and the subsequent cessation of foreign investment. Economic reforms in 1990 resulted in intense development and financing in Shanghai, and in 2005 Shanghai became the world’s largest cargo port. The city is a tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as the Bund and City God Temple, its modern and ever-expanding Pudong skyline including the Oriental Pearl Tower, and its new reputation as a cosmopolitan center of culture and design. Today, Shanghai is the largest center of commerce and finance in mainland China, and has been described as the “showpiece” of the world’s fastest-growing major economy.
