Urban development program in China : towards China's urban future (English)

China is rapidly transitioning from a command economy to a market economy and from a rural, agricultural society to an urban society. Some 80 percent of its national economic growth originates today in cities and towns. The objective of the World Bank assistance to China regarding urban development is to facilitate efficient, equitable, and sustainable urban growth and restructuring, by helping to improve: (a) protection of the local and global environment through wastewater, air pollution, and solid waste management, and preservation of cultural heritage; (b) provision of infrastructure, basic public services, and housing; and (c) institutional and financial frameworks of local governance and public service provision.
