Its industrial output includes steel, machinery, shipbuilding, textiles, food processing, petrochemicals and fertilizers, cameras, radio and television.

To most foreigners Shanghai conjures up stories of adventurous exaggeration, for it was a dynamic, violent and colorful city. Most of the European style quarters of the old International Settlement and the French Concession areas are now part of the most modern city in the world. The growth of Shanghai can be credited to Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin. President Zemin is pictured above with Troy Cory in 1988 at the Shanghai TV Festival. The Troy Cory Show, (Joey Lauren Adams) -- was the first American entertainment group to perform in China -- after the cultural revolution (1966-1976) came to an absolute end. Troy Cory was recently honored for his Harbin, China concert performances, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Michael Antonovich, Mayor of the LA County.
