ⓘ Chongming District

Chongming District is northernmost district of the provincial-level municipality of Shanghai. Chongming consists of three low-lying inhabited alluvial islands at the mouth of the Yangtze north of the Shanghai peninsula: Chongming, Changxing, and Hengsha. Following its massive expansion in the 20th century, Chongming is now the 2nd-largest island administered by the Peoples Republic of China and the 3rd-largest in Greater China, after Taiwan and Hainan. Chongming does not, however, administer all of the island: owing to its continual expansion from sediment deposited by the Yangtze, it has merged with formerly separate islands and now includes Jiangsu provinces pene-exclave townships of Haiyong and Qilong. Chongming proper covers an area of 1.411 km 2 and had a population of 704 000 at the time of the Sixth National Census in 2010.

The district was founded in 1396, the second year of Hongwu of Ming dynastys. With the completion of chongqi Yangtze river and bridges, he is now connected to the rest of Shanghai and the southeastern province of Jiangsu along the chord hushan not. Further development is now urban and agricultural master-plan led by Philip Enquist of soma, though the ambitious plans of "eco city" named Dongtan has been frozen since 2006, the ouster of the mayor Chen Liangyu and other areas increased immigration of people to move from Central China after construction of the dam "Three gorges".
