The second contest on the best practices of city governance in Shanghai kicked off on Monday.

Organized by the China Institute for Urban Governance (CIUG) and the school of international and public affairs at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, as well as media group People's Daily, the contest is aimed at summarizing local experiences of managing the mega-city and promoting best practices to regions in China.

According to Zhang Lufa, vice-dean of the CIUG, the contest will involve cases related to topics such as digital transformation of cities, construction of people-centered cities, and the revitalization of rural areas in a mega-city.

Governmental departments at all levels and social organizations can submit cases that they have participated in or have run for over one year through the CIUG website and the official account of the China City Government on WeChat before September.

Zhang said that aside from assessing submission, judges will also carry out field investigation in the regions discussed in the shortlisted applications.

The results will be announced at the opening ceremony of the Global Urban Forum which is scheduled to take place in October.
