30th October 2014 -- Urbanization in China (L. Riccardi, M. Bagnasco, G. Verdini)

China’s urban population may increase by around 230 million people in the next 15 years. But, most of this growth will take place not in metropolises, while in the small and medium size satellite cities around them.

As people move to these cities, China’s working-age population will begin to decline, and its elderly population will grow dramatically. Together, these processes will lead to major changes not only in China’s overall economic structure, but also in the financial, fiscal and political relationship between central and local government.
