Pingshan District is a district of Shenzhen, Guangdong.[1][2]

History[edit]

Pingshan was established as a New District on June 30, 2009 by the Shenzhen municipal government.[1][3] This new district superseded the old plan which was initiated back in 1994 and began construction in 1997.[1] It was still part of Longgang District in administrative management. On October 11, 2016, Pingshan was officially separated from Longgang to become a district itself.[4]

Located southwest of the Huanping community in Pingshan New District, the Dawan Ancestral Residence is one of the biggest Hakka buildings in China. It was built by the Zeng family in 1791 during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor in the Qing dynasty.[5]

In Summer 2018, The Pingshan District made international news after a group of workers from The Jasic manufacturing plant went on strike and demonstrated along with student activists from the Jasic Solidarity Support Group. The event is referred to as The Jasic Incident.[6][7][8]
