Georgia Tech Sam Nunn School of International Affairs Professor Fei-Ling Wang wrote “China's Push for Megacities: Is Bigger Better?" in the China-Britain Business Council's publication, FOCUS Magazine, June 4.

Excerpt:

"In 1978, before Deng Xiaoping's Opening Up and Reform policy, only 18 percent of China's population lived in urban areas.

The Nunn School is a unit of Georgia Tech's Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
