Some China stats for first thing

I am fascinated by China these days fills me with a mixture of opportunity; excitement and perhaps a little fear. Anyway, my friend Gary just texted me via Skype the following amazing set of forecasts:

McKinsey research suggests China’s urban population will expand from 572 million in 2005 to 926 million in 2025 and more than one billion by 2030. By 2025, China will have 219 cities with more than one million inhabitants, and 24 cities with more than five million people. Two of its cities, Shanghai and Beijing, will become ‘super cities’ by 2020, with populations of more than 20 million each. At current growth rates, fifteen other Chinese cities could also meet the 20 million mark.’

If you are interested in China and particularly in doing business there then you should go to his site (bizchina-update.com) where you will find news; commentary; insight together with perspective and stories you just won’t see anywhere else.
