Chinese city planning & The 12th 5-year plan

BEIJING, March 5 (Xinhua) -- The draft of China's 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-2015) was submitted Saturday to the National People's Congress (NPC), the top legislature for reviewing.

Following are key targets of the draft:

Economic targets

-- GDP to grow by 7 percent annually on average;

-- More than 45 million jobs to be created in urban areas;

-- Urban registered unemployment to be kept no higher than 5 percent;

-- Prices to be kept generally stable.


Seven Prototypical Chinese Cities:
ABSTRACT: Not all Chinese cities are alike, and these differences are reflected in the challenges posed by urbanization and the corresponding responses cities undertake. From a national perspective, however, similarities are essential for formulating broad urbanization strategies. Our research addresses this dilemma through a cluster analysis based on key word coding of principal tasks outlined in the 11th Five-Year Plans of 286 major cities in China. In effect, the Five-Year plan becomes a proxy survey instrument. Seven distinct clusters emerge, and an additional analysis using socio-economic data from the China City Statistical Yearbook is undertaken to further identify the defining characteristics of each cluster and prototypical cities within them (Jilin, Liuzhou, Zhuzhou, Nanping, Xinyu, Chengde and Mianyang). Finally, implications for national urban planning strategies are discussed.


Edit: Does anyone here have any first hand experience with these cities? The seven prototypical cities for example? And if so, does it seem to fit the descriptions laid out?
In the seventh cluster, I noticed how both Shenzhen and Chongqing was mentionned as having large poverty gaps, and needing to reduce those. In Chongqing's case, I suppose that is combined with the new public housings. Perhaps we can see this as an indicator of Shenzhen being the next chinese city to have property tax on real estate added. Like Shanghai and Chongqing.
I also found the first cluster of cities very interresting. Cities like Xiamen, Dalian and Nanjing will focus less on urbanization, and more on spacial distribution! At least in Nanjing's case, I wonder if this is a fact, or just a mishap from how they collected the data.
