Introduction -- Urban Development in the People's Republic of China and India: Some Key Observations -- Highlights of the Workshop Program -- Policy Implications of workshop
Planning for development in rapidly urbanizing Asia requires a fresh look. This book contracts the urban development experiences and practices of the two giant countries in Asia: the People's Republic of China (PRC) and India. The Asian Development Bank sponsored a 9-day workshop on Urban Development Experience and Visions, and senior-level government officials of India were invited for the workshop, and visited Beijing, Suzhou, and Shenzhen in the PRC. Based on the workshop, field visits, and policy discussions on innovative urban development practices, this book summarizes key messages derived from the workshop: the challenges of urbanization should be turned around and viewed as opportunities for achieving economic growth.
