China’s economic development and modernization programs launched in the past three decades have significantly altered the traditional urban systems in China.

In spite of political overtones in China's development policies since several decades ago, the new patterns of urbanization reflect the need to meet the specific realities of resources, cultural values, and social heritage in the nation building process, which are also important parts of modernization.
