Sustainable Efficiency in China with Urbanization



The study in this chapter aims to realize sustainable growth in China with the path of urbanization. An interior migration of population by 30% and a selected enhancement of investment by 30% will be two promising strategies to reduce the regional urbanization gap between middle and eastern regions and hence to realize balanced and sustainable growth. An additional 10 percent rise investment put into big cities with urbanization level than the overall average urbanization level and only changes 50 percent of the original added value of investment in big cities will be two promising strategies in big cities promote the overall urbanization level for sustainable growth.
