"In the process of China's urbanization development, we must know the common law of world urban development and respect China’s unique personality.
“The benefits of urbanization should be released through not only mechanisms such as household registration, land, administrative management, planning, investment and financing, but also be made more direct, obvious and simple through intelligent technology. In May, Tianjin released the Haihe Talents Plan which intends to make the city's builders a real part of the city. This is a good example of the mechanism of reform," Peng said.
