原文标题：China to build world's biggest mega city
In six years, China is set to build world's biggest mega city developing nine cities around the Pearl River Delta. The new mega-city will cover China's manufacturing base from Guangzhou to Shenzhen, including Foshan, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Jiangmen, Huizhou and Zhaoqing, acounting for a tenth of the Chinese economy, according to a report in The Telegraph.
The 'Turn The Pearl River Delta Into One' scheme will build a 16,000 square mile urban area that is 26 times larger than Greater London, or twice the size of Wales, says The Telegraphreport.
By 2025, China will have 219 cities with more than one million inhabitants - compared with 35 in Europe today - and 24 cities with more than five million people, according to a Mckinsey report.
Connecting these cities would be 150 major infrastructure projects costing a whopping 190 billion pounds.
The project would bring about a reduction in phone bills and improve hospitals and schools in the area.
China which has a well-connected rail network with further build 3,100 miles of railway to be laid to connect the cities. The proposed infrastructure projects in sectors like energy, water and telecommunications will create millions of jobs.
The Pearl River Delta is one of China's leading economic region with a huge manufacturing base.
The regions have thousands of factories manufacturing electronic products, toys, garments and textiles, plastic products, and a range of other goods.

We are not able to complete even a bridge with proper connecting road in 6 years wheras china is making 26 times bigger than london in 6 years. It is time for us to tighten our belt and accelerate the time of completion of project without sacrificing the quality.

chinese growth looks gr8, it's more facinating to ears. about 10% chinese are surely benefited by the growth of chinese economy. but the gap between other 90% population and this 10% in wide-wide enough to bring unrest in future.. may be 30-40 yrs or so..
surely chinese ppl will want their basic rights, to express themselves, to speak their mind etc.. etc.. whether they get it or not.. they will want to experiment with it for sure..
as one old chinese saying goes.. all that glitters is not gold

If everyone was given freedom to speak, then no development ever happens and china would have still been like India.
In India no project ever gets started because some idiot does not like it. Because he has the freedom of speech, he will go to court along with his useless goons and will stall the project and no development ever happens in India...
There goes your freedom of speech. You see how far it has taken India?

Yes concentrate all Chinese at one place so that it is easy to destroy them. Drop bomb at one place rather than 10 places.
Chinese Chinese all the way

One hand India is down with environment concerns at the cost of FDI & infrastructure,the Chinese are going all out to build infrastructure like
-fastest train in the world
-huge road to Nepal
-Biggest Hydro Dam in the world
-and now biggest city in the world.
Learning will be too late if we delay it .China has very strong anti powerty schemes and they do not give too much stress on GDP growth.We clap on GDP growth with 40 % population as poor.
India needs less democracy and practical environment laws.
China has been building city clusters for long time
by Raj Gupta (View MyPage) on Jan 27, 2011 08:24 PM
The metro cluster of Pear river delta, the metro cluster of Yangtze river delta, Beijing-Tianjin metro cluster, Bohai Bay metro cluster are just examples.
The metro cluster of Yangtze river delta could be much bigger, where there are cities of Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Suzhou, Wuxi, Changzhou. Other than the high-spped railways of the national high-speed network are connecting the cities, China is also building inter-city high-speed railways.;
CHINA has the biggest debts to international community

CHINA's mass prodn. dumping approach and giving so much impetus to growth with highest borrowings has resulted with the "BIGGEST MESS".
Also Unlike India where produce is for more "Internal consumption" China has a story of having US as there biggest dump yard and US Economy is on a complete decline.Result CHINA will be in the biggest crisis,bigger then what US or DUBAI saw in recent times.
No problem,let them build big cities....One does hope they don't become "Ghost cities" with Financial Mess CHINA has GOT INTO
Shanghai is one of the most fanciest cities in the world

you would never find a crack in any building in Shanghai. the infrastructure that they build is un comparable. our ministers went there and i believe just enjoyed the stuff. we simply need to work for 100 years to come near to SH

Every one starts criticizing india when there is comparision with china.
Every one should first think what they have contributed to country faithfully before criticizing the country..
Every body wants to flee to america and most of the people who comment are lazy software engineers who does not have any love to country but have the goal of earning pennies and fleeing to america.
They just comment blah blah .. beacause they have internet conn in office and they want to timpe pass...
building mega cities doesnot indicate development, destructing environment. what it only matters is dignified and peaceful life

live in a Country where Ruling party is shy of disclosing names of the traitors who stocked black money in foreign Banks and Opposition party is more interested in hoisting flags than taking up the problem of common man how to face inflation. What is that we can expect from these politicians and their respective blind supporters!
