Shanghai planning 'a city for the people'
June 24, 2020
Shanghai laid out its plans for "a city for the people" at the ninth plenary meeting of the 11th Shanghai Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Tuesday.
The document follows President Xi Jinping’s call for cities built by the people and for the people, and that urban planning and development must be committed to a people-centered approach and focus on people's needs.
Li Qiang, the CPC Shanghai Committee secretary, said: ”Especially during the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic this year, we have come to a deeper understanding of the need to uphold the supremacy of the people and translate the work of building cities for the people into practical actions that rely closely on the people and can bring tangible benefits to them.”
