The unprecedented economic growth in China has created a huge demand for urban land. Since the central government enacted the Regulation for Conveyance of State-Owned Land through Bidding, Auction, and Post in 2002, an urban land market in each city has been officially established and the right to urban land use for commerce, tourism, entertainment, and residence must be conveyed through the open market mechanism. Meanwhile, restrictions on mobility have been gradually lifted and many rural residents have been encouraged to migrate to urban areas to look for opportunities. As a result, market forces have shown increasingly significant influences on urban land allocation and urban land use pattern has started to reflect not only government planning but also the equilibrium of market forces.
One of the Top Ten state level Economic Development Zones with the highest investment potential in China is Changsha, capital of Hunan province.
