Town in Rugao ranks among 100 most competitive towns in China
A report on the overall competitiveness of China's villages and towns was released in Beijing on Sept 11 by the Competitiveness Think Tank and the Credit Committee of the China Information Industry Association.
Thirty-four towns in East China's Jiangsu province are listed among the top 100, more than any other province in the country. Changjiang Town, located in southern Rugao, a county-level city in Nantong, Jiangsu province, ranked 69th on the list.
Changjiang was once an obscure and underdeveloped town. However, the town was able to seize upon opportunities brought about by the development of the Yangtze River Economic Zone to bring about an economic and social transformation.
The newly-released report argues that the development of villages and towns plays an important role in accelerating regional economic growth and improving public services, as well as in driving rural revitalization.
