In the contemporary years, Chinese government has been working on urbanisation continuously. Indeed, China is rising. However, there are still a lot of problems have to be solved. Firstly, it’s ‘Ghost City’ which shows the bungling effort of the urbanisation. ‘Ghost City’ means a set of building without people living in. That shows that the earth source is wasted. Besides, with the process of the urbanisation, a lot of pollutions appear. The places people live in are polluted. Furthermore, the citizens’ welfare has not been fully developed yet. Many people in need cannot get help from the government. However, Chinese government has noticed these problems, government has been focusing on these problems, let’s expect the rising of China.
