    Zoom-in China Online Training Series (1): Urbanization

    09:00 -11:00
    2021.11.04

    BACKGROUND

    In the past 40 years, China´s urban population has grown from about 200 million or 20% in 1980 to nearly 800 million or 60% in 2020. That is about 1.5 times the total population of the EU. Urban development process in China is profoundly different from the urban development process in EU. For this reason, urbanization in China and associated transition tendency is a very relevant topic for EU-China urban and regional development cooperation.

    The Zoom-in China is part of the International Urban and Regional Cooperation (IURC) in China, participated by representatives of national and local governments, and urban development experts, discussing about long-term social, economic and ecological change in China. The aim is to provide EU city and regional representatives the context of urban transition in China, therefore help city and regional cooperation to lead in a more effective way and achieve a more satisfactory result.

    OBJECTIVES

    Through deep discussion on China urbanization context, this online session aims to identify challenges faced and strategies implemented in Chinese cities. The training may help EU cites to deep understand Chinese context and transfer the knowledge to the IURC China cooperation process by:

    1. Sharing knowledge on the social, economic and technical context of Chinese cities
    2. Identifying potential pilot areas in the future cooperation with Chinese counterparts

The urban population has grown from about 200 million or 20% in 1980 to nearly 800 million or 60% in 2020. That is about 1.5 times the total population of the EU. The growth was largely relying on labor, land, raw materials, and other cost-effective resources to participate in global supply chain. To transform to a sustainable pathway, Chinese government put a major policy focus on promoting innovation system in urban and regional development. It has profound impact on spatial development and economic growth in different regions in China.

The aim is to provide EU city and regional representatives the context of urban transition in China, therefore help city and regional cooperation to lead in a more effective way and achieve a more satisfactory result.
