Nansha New Area (simplified Chinese: 南沙新区; traditional Chinese: 南沙新區; pinyin: Nánshā Xīn Qū) is the newly established state-level new area (special economic and political administration zone) under the direct control of Guangzhou Municipal Government on September 2012.[1]

On September 2012 Nansha New Area was approved by the State Council of China's Central Government as the sixth state-level new area (followed by Pudong of Shanghai, Binhai of Tianjin, Liangjiang of Chongqing, Zhoushan of Zhejiang, and Lanzhou New Area, Gansu), which is also the first state-level new development area in South Central China.
