Economic workshop: Fostering China’s integrated urban-rural development
BY QIYUN HUANG
China faces ongoing challenges integrating the economies of its rural and urban areas as it seeks to build on the dynamism of cities to benefit the country’s large population of rural residents—who continue to face widespread poverty and other problems.
A Sept. 24 workshop explored these issues in light of China’s “common prosperity” policies, COVID-19 impacts, and more. The event was jointly organized by the China Academy for Rural Development (CARD) and the School of Public Affairs (SPA) at Zhejiang University (ZU), with the support of the ZU-IFPRI Joint Center for International Development Studies as well as the ZU Food Systems and Policy Lab.
