Abstract

During the past three decades, with the sustained and high-speed economic growth, urbanization rate is constantly increasing in China. As the same time, the scale of cities is quickly expanding in many regions of China. As the driving force of urban growth, the expansion of industrial land influences the change of urban spatial structure. Taking Zhejiang province as a case, this paper aims to study the "double effect" that the expansion of industrial land brings to urban scale. The "double effect" means the direct effect that the expansion of industrial park brings to urban expansion, as well as industrial economy's pulling effect on the other industries. Finally, some strategies for urban development are proposed, such as changing the expansion mode of industrial land and enhancing competitiveness in economic environment.
