Vice Premier Li Keqiang has been pushing China's urbanization as a key factor in the nation's economic growth. China's Southern Metropolis Daily recently reported by 2020 the nation's urbanization plans is expected to create $6.24 trillion worth of investment. To support the solar industry the Chinese government last month confirmed a second round of subsidies will be provided to over 100 developers of solar projects.
