Abstract

[2012 was a critical year for the world economy—global economic recovery was still suffering severe impact from Europe’s debt crisis; the Chinese economy was growing at a slowing rate; competition between cities and regions was intensifying. As a whole, however, Chinese cities registered remarkable achievements in economic development, people’s well-being, ecosystem protection and supporting capacity building, with notable improvements in scientifically-sound urban development. The CPC said in the report to the 18th Party Congress that “China has entered the decisive stage of completing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects,” that it would “continue to pursue development in a scientific way, promote social harmony, and improve the people’s lives” and that it would “resolutely discard all notions and systems that hinder efforts to pursue development in a scientific way.” This report underlined “development in a scientific way” as the primary task in China and “increasing the people’s well-being” as the primary goal of development. This indicates that scientifically-sound urban development has entered a new stage whether from the perspective of progress made by Chinese cities or from that of strategic deployment made by the Chinese government.]
