5 conclusion discussion
5 Conclusion/ Discussion
  • 1. The Chinese City System further deviates from one-city primacy.
  • 2. The Chinese city system became better structurally connected and articulated.
  • 3. Globalization has limited effect on city network change in China.
  • These provide evidence to support our argument that--

The national Context, esp. the state, is much more important than international forces. This prevent China’s emergence as a Third World city-system pattern.
