The 70th anniversary of Shanghai’s liberation gives us a chance to look back on the incredible journey that has taken this city to where it is now, one of greatest metropolises in the world. These achievements did not come easily. They have relied on the ingenuity, determination, dedication and sheer hard work of doctors, engineers and scientists.
Some of these record breaking achievements, I, as a foreigner living in China, have driven through or walked pass without even noticing. In the last few weeks I have been on a journey to meet and hear some of the stories of the incredible unsung heroes who have transformed this city. Come and join me on my journey and Shanghai’s journey.
