Gearing up for China’s urban billion

This Policy Spotlight is organised within the framework of the Europe-China Forum, a joint initiative of Friends of Europe and the Mission of the People’s Republic of China to the European Union, and with media partner Europe’s World.

The world is watching closely as China’s cities get big, bigger, biggest. China’s rapid urbanisation is unprecedented in human history: by 2030, the country’s urban population will reach 1 billion – roughly one in every eight people in the world. Not surprisingly, China’s new leaders have put urbanisation at the top of their priorities. But their task is not easy, with the country’s new urban dwellers demanding not only cleaner air but also better housing, sanitation, mobility, health, education and recreational facilities. Tom Miller, Managing Editor at GK Dragonomics and author of the book “China’s Urban Billion”, will be sharing his insights on China’s urbanisation challenge.
