Abstract

To respond to the calling of Deng Xiaoping in 1992—Deng's South Inspection Speech, a large amount of "migrant workers" flowed into Shenzhen resulting in the prosperity of Shenzhen's primary processing. With the migration of people, Shenzhen ushered in a new era. Moreover, as one city of a country, Shenzhen's city functions are not only working as a regular city but also a platform or a window that connects the inland urban to the world and spread Chinese authority, earning a place for Chinese enterprises in the world market. Shenzhen becomes a place of receiving and introducing a new idea from out of the country. By comparing the history of Hong Kong and Shenzhen, this essay tries to explain the tendency of Shenzhen's industrial transformation and talks about the talented people that adapted to the tendency. As Shenzhen's urban function is transforming from processing to creating, Shenzhen needs newcomers who are high-educated and have some ideas about improving the social environment. Differing from the last 20 years, Shenzhen not only needs newcomers to be brave but also needs talented men and women to develop different industries of Shenzhen into the top level all over the world.
