Inspired by the warm and encouraging spirit of President Franklin Roosevelt’s legendary “Fireside Chats” with which dialogue and communication were carried out effectively at the time of anxiety, this Symposium is organized to bring together a team of leading, credible and extremely experienced experts from China for brainstorming ideas about some of the most critical and challenging issues concerning China’s urban, regional and national developments. The issues to be addressed shall include housing development, scientific and technological innovation, urban regeneration, countryside revitalization, innovation and regional transformation, and sustainable urbanization. By bringing over a small and highly selective group of credible and experienced experts holding diverse and complementary expertise for a focused “fireside chat”, this symposium will pave the way for the formation of new partnerships to facilitate knowledge advancement and policy formation beneficial to China’s sustainable urban and regional development.
