The headquarters of SWHF is located in the city of Shenzhen, China.

Shenzhen is located on the southern tip of the Chinese mainland and on the eastern bank of the Pearl River. It has a border with Hong Kong. Occupying 1,991.64 square kilometers, the city has a subtropical marine climate with plenty of rain and sunshine and is rich in tropical fruit. By the end of 2015, the population of Shenzhen was estimated to be 11.38 million.

Shenzhen was established in 1980 as China's first special economic zone - the brainchild of the late Chinese leader, Deng Xiaoping. Shenzhen has been a touchstone for China's reform and opening-up policy since then.

In barely 36 years, Shenzhen, once a tiny border town of just over 30,000 people, has grown into a modern metropolis. It established many firsts in the history of world industrialization, urbanization and modernization.

The city is the high-tech and manufacturing hub of southern China, home to the world's third-busiest container port and the fourth-busiest airport on the Chinese mainland. It is one of the country's most popular tourist destination. It was in 2015 elected one of the top 10 Chinese cities popular with expats. The high-tech, financial services, modern logistics and cultural industries are mainstays of the city. Emerging industries of strategic importance and modern service industries are quickly becoming new engines for the city's economic growth.

Xiong'an New Area

Xiong’an New Area is located in Baoding City, Hebei Province, China. As the hinterland of Beijing, Tianjin and Baoding, it is planned to cover and mandated to manage the three small counties of Xiongxian, Rongcheng and Anxin as well as some surrounding areas.

The establishment of Xiong’an New Area is a major historic strategic choice made by the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, and also part of the millennium strategy and significant national events following the establishment of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and Shanghai Pudong New District. This area is of great practical and far-reaching historical significance for focusing on the migration of Beijing’s non-capital functions, exploring new optimized development modes of densely populated and economically developed areas, adjusting and optimizing the urban layout and spatial structure of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, and fostering new engines for innovation-driven development.
