    China's empty cities are starting to make sense, as can been seen in this artilce.

    From the article:
    According to a plan published in 2016, China plans to grant urban permanent residency to 100 million people by 2020.
    The scramble for domestic migrants by provincial capital cities highlights an increased focus on urbanisation as municipal authorities realise that they need a consistent inflow of people to sustain local property markets and to prompt economic growth.
    Hangzhou, the provincial capital city of affluent Zhejiang province, last week announced that it will grant permanent residency to migrants with college education and above, a relaxation from the previous regulation that stated a person with a college education degree can only apply for permanent residency if they are under 35 years old.
    In February, the city of Xian announced that any Chinese citizen with a university degree can become a permanent resident of the city, with the rule also applying to students who have not yet graduated.
    The bottom-up efforts by municipal governments are endorsed by Beijing as the central government regards “urbanisation of people” as the single largest driver for the country’s economic growth. According to a plan published in 2016, China plans to grant urban permanent residency to 100 million people by 2020
    In general, the larger a city, the more difficult it is to obtain its hukou. Beijing, for example, is famously unfriendly to domestic migrants after the municipal government kicked hundreds of thousands of domestic migrants out of the city in the winter of 2017 after a fire killed 19 people.
    However, the wave began to turn as the country’s working population, defined as those aged between 16 and 59, shrank for the seventh consecutive year in 2018.
