Research on the Balanced Development of China’s Urbanization and Industrialization in Eastern, Central, Western and Northeastern Regions

According to the relationship between urbanization development and industrialization development since the opening up and reform of China, the quantitative analysis of I/U and N/U is conducted. The results show that the overall level of China’s urbanization lags behind that of the industrialization, and this phenomenon of lag tends to dwindle. In 2003, the relationship between China’s urbanization and industrialization was most balanced, but after 2003, the phenomenon of urbanization lagging behind industrialization tends to distend gradually again; being that the development of urbanization is influenced by natural basis and policy, different regions have different cases. In the eastern and central region, the urbanization lags behind industrialization; in the northeastern region, the urbanization preponderate over industrialization; in the western region, the level of urbanization is not high, but it develops along with the industrialization in tandem. The regional difference of urbanization and industrialization requires that different should implement different policies. The eastern region still has great developmental space, and it should implement the strategy of urbanization as soon as possible; on the basis of expanding the current urban scale and improving quality, the central region should quicken the development of central cities; the western region should choose the path of concentrated-type urbanization; the three northeastern provinces should give priority to improving the quality of local industrialization vigorously and promoting the rapid upgrade of industrial structure, so as to propel the balanced development of urbanization and industrialization.
