BEIJING, March 5 (Xinhua) -- China will carry out a new type of people-centered urbanization that will grant rural people who live in cities more social welfare currently enjoyed by the city dwellers, according to a government work report delivered by Premier Li Keqiang on Wednesday.

Urbanization is the sure route to modernization and an important basis for integrating the urban and rural structures, Li said in his first government work report at the annual session of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature.

China will grant urban residency to around 100 million rural people who have moved to cities, rebuild rundown city areas and villages inside cities where around 100 million people live, and guide the urbanization of around 100 million rural residents of the central and western regions in cities there, says the report.
