History[edit] Although the earliest traces of human habitation in the area stretch back 5,000 years, Dongguan's emergence as a true city is a recent phenomenon. In 1839, at the outset of the First Opium War, large quantities of seized opium were destroyed in Humen, a town that now belongs to Dongguan. Several of the major battles of the war were fought in this area. During the Second World War, the city served as the base for guerrilla resistance against the Japanese occupation.[3] Being a district of the Huiyang prefecture before, as its economy overshadowed the prefectural capital of Huizhou
Huizhou
itself, Dongguan earned city status in 1985, and was upgraded to prefecture city status three years later.[4] During this period the city changed its focus from an agricultural town into a manufacturing hub, with an average annual growth of up to 18%.[5] The city ranked 13th in Forbes China's listing of the most innovative mainland cities, as well as 18th in Foreign Policy's listing of the most dynamic cities in the world. Geography[edit] Geographically, the city is mostly hilly to the east and flat in the west, with 115.98 kilometres (72.07 mi) of shoreline. The urban centre of Dongguan

is 50 kilometres (31 mi) from that of Guangzhou

economic corridor, a hub for both land and sea transport. Of Dongguan's total area, 27% is water, 25% forest land, and 13% arable land, while 35% of its land area has been fully developed.[citation needed]

Humen Pearl River Bridge
is a suspension bridge over the Pearl River. Completed in 1997, it has a main span of 888 metres (2,913 ft). Construction work on the Second Humen Pearl River Bridge will start in early 2014. Among the four metro lines (R1-R4) planned for the Dongguan
Dongguan
Rail Transit, R2 Line is presently under construction and was scheduled to open for operations in early 2015. This was delayed and opened in May 2016. The R2 Line will link towns in Western Dongguan, thereby promoting the connection of the entire downtown area with Houjie, Humen and Chang’an. It will also support Dongguan's regional transportation with other cities such as Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong by joining with the rail transit junctions of the Pearl River Delta.[13] Economy[edit] Dongguan
Dongguan
is a major manufacturing hub, although it suffered significant loss of economic activity from the impact of the 2008 financial crisis.[14][15] The largest industrial sector is manufacturing of electronics and communications equipment; international companies with facilities in Dongguan
Dongguan
include DuPont, Samsung Electronics, Nokia, Coca-Cola, Nestlé
Nestlé
and Maersk.[16] The Dongguan
Dongguan
Science and Technology Museum (opened in December 2005), the high tech commerce park in the Songshan Lake district (opened in 2003) and a partnership with the Global IT Academy of the Brea Olinda Unified School District in Southern California
Southern California
have demonstrated the city's emphasis on attracting technology business. The city announced in 2005 a planned investment of US$500 million over five years for technology infrastructure improvements. The city administration is considered especially progressive in seeking foreign direct investment.[citation needed] Among the investors were Brazilian shoe manufacturers. Brazil
Brazil
excelled in manufacturing cheap footwear in the 1970s and 80s. The Brazilian community in Dongguan
Dongguan
numbered 4,000 people in 2013.[17][18] While the city is the fourth largest export region in China, behind Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Suzhou, Dongguan
Dongguan
has yet to gain the kind of name recognition realized by Shenzhen
Shenzhen
outside of China. This may be because the city has focused on infrastructure investment rather than the direct targeting of major corporations with financial incentives for economic development. Nevertheless, Dongguan
Dongguan
has been identified by high level representatives of the National Development and Reform Commission of the central government as one of the most significant growth regions for technology in the coming years. As part of this plan, the Dongguan
Dongguan
local government announced a plan to create and support a 100-billion-yuan photovoltaic manufacturing industry by 2015.[19] To cope with the impact of the financial crisis, Dongguan
Dongguan
city is looking to industrial restructuring, focusing on four pillar platforms — governmental services, supporting measures, technology upgrade, and market expansion. The city government claims that this process has already enhanced the its capability for independent innovation and the quantity of patent applications in 2008.[20][21] In Dongguan, manufacturing is prosperous and with a strong tertiary industry and had a total GDP of 501 billion RMB with the scale proportion of the three major industrial sectors standing at 0.4:46.9:52.7 in 2012.[22] On 9 February 2014, China
China
Central Television aired a special on the sex industry in Dongguan. The same day Guangdong
Guangdong
Provincial Police raided and closed all saunas, bars, foot massages, karaokes, and other businesses associated with the sex industry. The economic impact of this crackdown is believed to be 50 billion yuan, or just over $8 billion US dollars. The residual effects of the crackdown affected the livelihood of taxi drivers and restaurants who, while not directly involved in the sex industry, benefited from the increased clientele.[23] Sports and culture[edit] Dongguan
Dongguan
is dubbed as a "National Basketball City" and is the only prefecture-level city with three professional basketball clubs in China. The Guangdong
Guangdong
Southern Tigers was the first professional basketball club in China, having won eight Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) championships. The 16,000 seat Dongguan Basketball Center will be one of the venues for the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.[24] The venue has already hosted the 2015 Sudirman Cup
2015 Sudirman Cup
badminton tournament.[25] Dongguan
Dongguan
Yulan Theater is one of China’s newest multipurpose performing arts venues. With its multi-layered exterior suggestive of an unfolding lotus petal, it has become a landmark in Dongguan
Dongguan
city. The new cultural hub houses two theatres presenting a full schedule of performances, including Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet
and the Chinese classic Butterfly Lovers. So far Dongguan
Dongguan
has produced 7 original musicals by its own and made a roadshow of 60 performances in over 30 cities of China.[26] Social issues[edit] The city and province have been the recent focus of press and journalist attention with coverage of the many young Chinese workers, principally females (so-called factory girls), from agricultural areas who work in the area's factories and manufacturing/assembly facilities, where many are housed in large dormitories, usually several to a room.[27] An article in the High Tech Misery in China
China
series reports research conducted, over 2008 to 2009, on working conditions at one of the city's major keyboard makers ( Dongguan
Dongguan
Meitai Plastics & Electronics Factory); in it, Meitai factory won some unwanted attention due to the poor conditions for its young, mostly female workers. The article[28] includes details of those conditions, photos, translations of employer's rules and evidence that well-known computer brands use this keyboard supplier's products. Dongguan
Dongguan
has as well a variety of types of brothels, massage parlours, nightclubs, sauna centres and karaoke bars. The city has more than 120 top-end luxury hotels and hundreds of other mid-range places that offer illegal sexual services or lease floors to sex operators, and many parts of the broader service sector benefit from the trade brought by visitors. Although much of the business is illegal, police operations to limit these activities were for a long time largely ineffective, in part because many members of the local administration and other officials have business interests in the sector.[29][30][31] On 9 February 2014, CCTV aired a report about prostitution in Dongguan. In reaction, on the same day, Dongguan
Dongguan
police launched a crackdown on brothels, massage parlours, nightclubs, sauna centres and karaoke bars, leading to some commentary that the city's days as China's sex capital were numbered.[32] Education[edit] The city is home to 650 educational institutions: one general college, a TV University as well as technical and vocational schools, 550 primary schools and 480 kindergartens. The number of professional teachers, including those at kindergartens, totals 20,268. A comparatively integrated educational system has been set up including preschool, basic, vocational, higher and lifelong adult education. Senior high school education has developed since 1995. The Dongguan University of Technology is located in Dongguan. Festivals[edit] Donguan is host to the following annual festivals:[33]
