This chapter discusses China’s regional development strategy. Promoting coordinated regional development remains one of the most urgent socioeconomic tasks in China’s 12th Five-Year Plan. Coordinated regional development involves implementing both a strategy for overall coordination and a strategy focused on developing the main functional areas, as well as initiatives to prevent GDP gaps from increasing beyond moderate ranges. The six major tasks involved in promoting regional development are outlined, which in addition to promoting development in specific areas, also encourages interregional cooperation and policies to reduce disparity in services, infrastructure, and funding between regions.
