Chinanews, Beijing, Sept. 13 (By Ruan Yulin) - During the "2005 Chinese
cities discussion forum Beijing summit" held on the 13th in Beijing, the
first ten Chinese cities ranked by their quality of life are Shenzhen,
Dongguan, Shanghai, Beijing, Hangzhou, Zhuhai, Ningbo, Guangzhou, Suzhou
and Xiamen.
Based on the year-long research conducted by Beijing International
Institute for Urban Development, the output titled "Report on quality of
life of Chinese cities" uses subjective and objective factors in
conjunction to evaluate and publish "Quality Index of Chinese cities'
lifestyle" and based on this index, ranked the top 100 cities in terms of
GDP. From a regional point of view, the highest quality of urban life
started at the Eastern region with Bohai region as a second. This quality
continues to decline in the Central region, reaching its lowest in the
Western region.
Experts said that at a certain level, the level of urban economic
development is an important factor influencing a city's quality of life.
From the angle of the current economic development in Chinese cities, the
region with higher economic development level also shows a relatively
high quality of life. But economic development level is not directly
equivalent to a city's quality of life, the two are not 100% correlated.
The 12 principal factors influencing whether a city has high quality of
life are: clothing, food, housing, transportation, living, aging,
disease, death, stability, environment, happiness and industry.
