The economic work conference of the Chinese central government held over the weekend set a new urbanization model as a sustainable driving force for China's economic growth, according to Beijing News Daily. In fact, a new urbanization model is a necessary step for China in the near future, as well as a timely reflection on the problems arising from China's earlier urbanization model. Megacities used to be popular among city planners in China. Some scholars say that the three major urban areas in Japan concentrate 90 percent of the country's population, and that China should transform its Bohai Bay, Pearl River delta, and Yangtze River delta areas into similar large-scale megacities.
