    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's too basic - so much so that it's answered in the 2nd paragraph of the page you linked to. – Denis de Bernardy Apr 11 '18 at 5:30
  • The article does not directly answer my question. It can be inferred but there was probably other things such as direct investment in infrastructure etc – user1605665 Apr 11 '18 at 12:57
  • It's a combination of being next to Hong Kong where there was plenty of capital and being one of the first special economic zones after China opened up, with a heavy trend towards massive urbanization and heavy infrastructure investments by China in the background. – Denis de Bernardy Apr 11 '18 at 13:08
