Abstract : After a period of an intensive urbanization in the territory of China, an outstanding phenomenon appears: five great metropolises (four situated in the eastern part of Chine) and about a hundred of "millionaire" cities experience a strong growing, but we hardly feel the development of the small towns.
Could these small towns participate in the development of the rural space and absorb a part of rural emigration to the metropolises? The 10th Five-Year Plan for National Economy and Social Development (2001-2005) has taken into account this perspective and carried out a series of orientations in order to promote a rapid development of these small towns in China.
This thesis not only emphasizes such opposite tendency but also analyses the heavy heritage which hinders their increasing. Through some monographs after the careful investigation, it reaches the two component parts about the evolution of the small towns:
- one side, the position of the small towns in the organization of the territory for explain how their development can solve some problems in the region with a little urbanization and slow down the tendency of the urban concentration in the coastal megapole;
- the other side, how to requalify of the "urban tissue" of the small towns by the urbanization to increase their attractivity and competitivity.
