RESTRUCTURE OF TRANSPORTATION IN CHINA: THE EMERGENCE OF A NEW TRANSACTIONAL ENVIRONMENT
Evaluation of the development process of transport networks in the extended metropolitan region of Shanghai over the past two decades. The paper considers first the historical elements, then examines how these elements have affected the process of urbanization in China. The geographic, economic, and political dimensions are analyzed with special emphasis on institutional factors, particularly the role of public policies and the functions of the administrative structures on the organization of transport systems. An analysis of structural changes in the composition of labor power in urban and periurban areas allows for a better understanding of the organization of economic activities between foreland and hinterland.
