I moved from Beijing City to Dalian City to observe an urban development project which is planned jointly by Yi Fang Group and Dalian Wanda Group, both of which are large economic groups in China. According to the staff’s explanation, this project aims to build a city large enough to accommodate 250,000 people in the new land, and provide the citizens with public welfare services including medical and health care, nursing care, and education, as well as the infrastructure development for the betterment of environment. I was overwhelmed by their incredible idea and the size of the project. We cannot compete with them in terms of scale, but I thought about what we could learn from them and in what way we could help them in the project.
