Invest On Urbanization, Build Chinese Dream – New Year Wishes from Editor of CNLift China
Joseph Stiglitz, winner of Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science and the former World Bank Vice
President, once said: "Urbanization in China and high-tech development in the United States will be two
major events in the development of human society in the 21st century."
About Chinas urbanization, the 18th CPC National Congress and Central Organization Work Conference
point out that urbanization is an important strategic and also core strategy for healthily sustainable
development of Chinas economy and society in the future, and investment in urbanization will be the
largest investment opportunities for Chinese corporations .
"National New-Style Urbanization Plan" proposes ideas of human’s urbanization, the urban cluster and
construction for small towns, industrial upgrading and develop a town by its industry, urban and rural integration,
bio-city, smart city and cultural city, reform of investment and financing system on urbanization, urbanization
demonstration spot and other new goals and tasks for urbanization development.
Knowing the focal points of the urban groups:
Established urban groups are 11,listed as Pearl River Delta,Yangtze River Delta,Beijing Tianjin and Hebei
Area,Shandong Peninsula,Liaoning Peninsula etc..
Establishing urban groups are 14,such as Wuhan urban group,Lanzhou urban group,Nanning urban group etc..
Potential urban groups are 7,as they are respectively in Henan Province,Hebei Province,Zhejiang Province,
Guangdong Province and Hainan Province.
These 32 urban groups will be mature enough to hold a population of 800 million in the group and 1.2 billion
in the city belts in 2030.
Government will place emphasis on comprehensive transport integration in the eastern urban groups,and
simultaneously boost the construction of inter-city express rail and express way in the western urban groups.
Investment opportunities mainly embody the
Yangtze River Economic Zone,Integration of Beijing Tianjin and Hebei,One Belt And One Road and urbanization.
Misconceptions in Urbanization and Demonstration of Germany
Urbanization,instead of population migrating to metropolis,is learning the experience how towns grew up in
Germany.In 50s to 60s,Germany had its mechanical operation enter its agriculture,with agricultural processing
plants also built in rural area,which facilitated processed agricultural products such as bread into the circulation
of commodities.In the first 10 years if the 21th century, the workforce in German towns were raising the quality,
developing the brand and setting up trading platforms.And the quality,brand and trading elements makes one
bag of milk powder made in Germany selling 300 yuan in China.From 2010 to 2020,the agricultural trend in
Germany is that providers can control the whole processing chain of their products,like originals and flavors,
which tells buyers everything.Rural people in Germany are used to living and working in countries but shopping
and entertaining in towns.People walk,cycle or drive to towns,which lowers their carbon emission compared to
large cities,making them comfortable and environmental.Data show that building energy consumption in large
cities is 1.5 times as high as rural places.The transportation energy consumption in metropolis like Beijing is 7
times higher than towns which means China needs more more towns to narrow the gap between urban and
rural places and distribute resources and environment rationally.
The Chinese government is promoting a cooperation model between the Government and social capital to support
the construction of new-type urbanization. Small town pilots will focus on the establishment of agricultural shifting
people cost-sharing mechanism,diversified sustainable investment and financing in urbanization mechanism,
reduce-administrative-costs building city mode, reforming and improving the rural homestead system.Demonstration
will be carried out in different regions at different levels in different types.
Officials of Ministry of Construction have studied in Germany,suggested that 3% of its population is agricultural
population, 97% living in towns, 70% of which live in small towns of 10,000 people or less.Contrary to Germany,
most of Chinas rich people live in cities. In the Bavaria of Germany,there are 18 towns,just like Chinese villages,
with the size of 10 square kilometers, separated by 3 to 4 km. Chinas urbanization development is to focus on the
countryside,boosting its economy,protecting its environment,constructing its living facilities,to improve the life the
Innovation Brings Development
From global prospect,Obama pushed to build high-tech manufacturing centers in America,two centers respectively
in Chicago and Detroit(digital manufacturing and design innovation centers and lightweight modern metal
manufacturing center).So far,the Obama administration has established nationwide 4 advanced centers to
promote the recovery of the
manufacturing, which includes National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center,with a core of 3D printing
technology, as well as an electronic power manufacturing center. It is reported that the United States also
plans to build a complex material manufacturing center in 2014.
Elevator leading companies in China have consciously integrated into the innovation and development.SJEC,
a listed company in China, showed the latest 3D printing technology to the pupils of a primary school in Suzhou,
from which we can tell that SJEC possesses a 3D printing research center and strives to put it into practice.The
United States is not the only one who applies 3D printing technology,and Pudong area,China,has solid printed
houses, dentures and also glasses.More and more products from 3D printing technology are around us.Moreover,
Shanghai STEP Electric Corporation and Canny Company are marching into the robot field,raising the levels of
robot manufacturing and application and strengthen the competition of Chinese technology.In the terms of elevator
research,KONE Elevator has its revolutionary victory in development of carbon fiber cables,and ThyssenKrupp AG
successfully initiates the ACCEL and MULTI cable-less cabin system,contributing to worldwide urbanization,
providing more potential for growth in elevator industry.
With the industrial upgrading and people-oriented development in China, elevators will be more comfortable,
convenient and beautiful.
