On the occasion of the "2011 Academic Seminar on China Cities' Development," the "China Cities' Competitiveness Report" was released in Beijing. Delegations discussed a number of issues related to the theme of the meeting.

In recent years, delegates at the meeting said, the central government implemented a series of effective measures, which helped accelerate the urbanization process, enhance city competitiveness and narrow the development gap among cities. In 2010, the average index of 294 China cities in competitive power is 0.551, higher than 2009’s 0.497, while their standard deviation is 0.116, lowered than 2009's 0.125.

Meanwhile, there are still some unsolved problems, such as unbalanced development among cities and a lack of reasonable planning and coordination. In order to further boost urbanization in a steady way, the central government should carry out the following tasks: reform urban-rural division policies and institutions, to promote urban and rural integration and equivalence, and to provide services in transportation, information and communication.
