Readers' Feedback: From QIU Baoxing
Today, it is commonly regarded that the urbanization of China is one of the most influential events in the world in the 21st century. Taking that into consideration, how to introduce to the world the academic and practical achievements of China in the field of urban planning becomes a question worthy of thorough considerations. For that, CCPR, the only English journal of China in the field of urban planning and construction that is distributed globally, has doubtlessly made remarkable contributions. ...It is now becoming an important window for China to exhibit its tremendous achievements in urban planning and construction to the world, as well as a unique platform for scholars, from both China and abroad, to exchange their theoretical thoughts and practical researches concerning China’s urban planning and construction.
With the coming of 2012, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the Editorial Department of CCPR, as well as the Urban Planning Society of China, Center for Human Settlements and School of Architecture of Tsinghua University, and Beijing Tsinghua Urban Planning & Design Institute that have supported the publication of CCPR, and hope that the journal will continue to publicize the theoretical explorations and practical achievements of China in urban planning and construction, so as to further expand their global influence!
