The Shanghainese people (Chinese: 上海人; pinyin: Shànghǎi rén; Shanghainese: [zɑ̃.hé.ɲɪɲ]) are the residents of Shanghai, China, especially those who can speak the Shanghainese dialect of Wu Chinese. In recent decades, millions of migrants have moved to Shanghai, who are often called the "New Shanghainese". According to the 2010 census data, about 9 million out of the 23 million residents of Shanghai, or more than 39%, are long-term migrants, triple the 3 million in 2000.
There is also a significant minority of Shanghainese people living in Sydney, Australia particularly in the suburbs of Ashfield and Burwood. As well as that, many Shanghainese have moved to large metropolitan areas including but not limited to New York City, Los Angeles and settled in various suburbs. In Hong Kong, a lot of rich people are of Shanghai origin. They or their ancestors fled from Mainland China before the Communist Party took over the city in 1949. Some actors on the TVB network, a television network based in Hong Kong, are originally from Shanghai, such as Liza Wang, Tracy Ip, and Natalie Tong. As the city of Shanghai becomes increasingly globalized, and its population diversified, the definition of Shanghainese is getting fuzzier, though it remains a symbolic source of pride for many who identify with the label.
