A Study on Forming a Construction Land Market That Unifies Urban and Rural Areas During the Process of the New-Type Urbanization in China

Jingyi WANG, Heping LIAO, Lin ZHU, Tao LI


Under the background of China’s new-type urbanization, the transformation of urbanization which is people-centered is quietly underway. The new-type urbanization not only puts people first, but also is firmly based on establishing a construction land market that unifies urban and rural areas. The Third Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party adopted the “Decision on Major Issues Concerning Comprehensively Deepening Reforms” (hereinafter referred to as the “Decision”), in which “forming a construction land market that unifies urban and rural areas” was proposed, and the Decision advocated that the rural collectively-owned construction land can “enter the market with the same rights and at the same prices as state-owned land”. This paper firstly reviewed the status quo of China’s construction land market in which there is segmentation between urban and rural areas. Then under the guidance of the specific reforming measures proposed by the Decision, the paper made a further attempt to discuss and explore the supporting measures of and safeguard mechanism for forming a construction land market that unifies urban and rural areas.
