Example text

Nanjing, Xi’an and Zhuhai have relaxed the requirements for obtaining a Hukou, whereas large cities such as Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai largely resist any reform of the Hukou system.  69). The Hukou system distinguishes between rural and urban residents, allowing the latter to obtain more privileges and benefits. Various welfare policies have also been implemented which differ between rural and urban areas and thus contribute further to the restriction of the mobility of labour. The Hukou registration system has resulted into a two-track migration system, one track for permanent migration, that is, for qualified workers and urban residents, and another track for temporary migration for the less qualified migrants from rural areas (Chan et al.

2 Balanced Path Development 35 Since 1993, the gap between the rural and urban areas has decreased because of increases in the mobility of workers from the rural to the urban areas, a decline in discriminatory agricultural pricing, a decline of employment in urban areas and a deliberate policy of balanced regional growth, especially in the central and western provinces of China, which has helped to increase rural incomes. There is an increase in earnings when individual workers move from rural to urban areas, but there is also an increase in density of population in urban areas; consequently, there is more congestion or pollution, which is the cost of greater urbanization.

As a result, regional disparities are actually larger than they would be if there was no Hukou system in place. The eventual elimination of the Hukou system will reduce the inequality between regions and should also increase economic efficiency. However, the Hukou system has been gradually relaxed, beginning in the smaller cities in order to relieve pressure of rural-to-urban migration to the larger cities where the costs of congestion are higher and increasing. As the 11th Five-Year Plan promoted greater urbanization, it induced further changes to the Hukou system.
