Asia Pacific Viewpoint special issue - China's Changing Regional Development

One of the most important aspects of China's economic development is the accompanying rapid urbanisation. China's growth has, however, been marked by unbalanced regional development in the past three decades as most of the coastal cities and regions are spearheading rapid growth while inland and rural areas are lagging behind.

The changing role of the Chinese state in urban and regional development is the key theme underlying this special issue. The assembled papers address different aspects of this multifaceted process that is still unfolding.
