Longhua (Chinese 龙华 新区, Pinyin Lónghuá Xīnqū) is a "New Municipality" of the South-Chinese city of Shenzhen in Guangdong Province. He was founded on December 30, 2011. It is a so-called "functional" municipality, a second-order administrative structure, ie a "city-center authority". This means that unlike the "old" districts of Shenzhen, Longhua has no People's Congress, no consultative conference, and above all no people's government (人民政府) elected by the People's Congress. Instead, its administration is directly determined and implemented by the city of Shenzhen.
