Shekou used to be called "the special zone in the special zone" because of its avant-grade role in the reform. With the upgrade of Shekou from Industrial Zone to Free Trade Zone, the fractal feature is now being amplified in the national strategy of Belt & Road with the free-trade zone as the head, the B & R as the body, and RMB as the standard. The accumulation of the productivities of manufacture, logistics and finance is now being shifted to the power of discourse in the international economic affairs , along with the shift of Shekou land development strategy.. "Shekou Roundtable: 2025" is a spatial development model designed for this geo-political change On the one hand, it intervenes the traditional planning with "Cultural Master-Planning" and "Public -Service & Industry Clusters ". On the other hand, it introduces" public participation "into the complementary interactions between the state and the society. The exhibition venue will become the materialized paradigm of the planning agenda, presenting the prototypes of multiple institutions, while unfolding the launching ceremonies for the institutions such as the International Research Center of Urbanology and Big Road Publisher, as well as the serial events including the Innovation Design Workshop, Creative Management of Museum, Free Trade Zone Forum, New Year's Yage Concert, etc.
