Did you know that by 2030, Chinese cities will be home to more than 1 billion people? At the moment there are more than 100 cities with populations over 1 million people and this is expected to double by 2025.

It will be known as Jing-Jin-Jo with a population of around 130 million people and will cover an area bigger than Uganda covering over 81,853.66 square miles.
