Research on the Development Mode of Yangtze River Delta Region under the Background of Urban-Rural Integration

Yue Liu


With the implementation of China's Yangtze River Delta integration strategy, the comprehensive strength of the Yangtze River Delta region has been continuously improved, but it is also facing increasingly severe challenges. Under the background of accelerating development, increasing contradictions and imbalance, it is particularly important to solve the problems of adapting urban and rural development modes to each other, narrowing the regional gap in various aspects and speeding up the integration process of the Yangtze River Delta. Taking the Yangtze River Delta region as the research object, this paper discusses the current mode of urban and rural development in China, and analyzes the important measures that Suzhou city should take for urban and rural development under the background of integrated development.
