About the Speech: 

Since China introduced market-orientated reforms in 1978, urbanisation in China has accelerated significantly, as a result of rapid economic growth. China’s urban population percentage is expected to reach 70% by 2030, and its distinctive features, such as the household registration system and the division of public land ownership, have profound implications for the economy, the environment, public resources and health.
