following china's accession to the wto, shanghai free trade test area is a higher level of openness, which is far beyond the level of "sar" or "new area" to seek the favorable treatment and explore the elements of market liberalization, government deregulation and administrative borders. it will become the new engine of the "china economic upgraded version".
