This chapter outlines the three modes for China’s New Urbanization, namely the general mode, differentiating mode, and gradual mode. Specifically, the general mode elaborates detailed development directions that China’s New Urbanization shall be appropriate and compact, resources friendly, eco-environment sustainable, local conditions abiding, rural development integrated, and comprehensive and open. The differentiating mode outlines detailed strategies for traditionally agricultural, pastoral, mining, and mixed agriculture-forestry-pastoral (field) areas. The gradual mode, on the other hand, provides alternative thoughts on China’s New Urbanization in which urbanization could be autonomous, shareholding, homestead replacement, and integrated with construction of new rural communities.
