Small Town Development in China: A 21st Century Challenge
Fred Gale and
Rural America/ Rural Development Perspectives, 2002, vol. 17, issue 1
China is placing a high priority on urbanizing and raising the incomes of its huge rural population. The government is pursuing a strategy that seeks to channel rural people into small cities and towns rather than large cities. This strategy faces challenges in creating jobs for new residents and financing new town construction. Farms and businesses in rural America may increasingly compete and do business with their counterparts in rural China as trade between the two countries increases.
