China's urbanization speed would slow down about 2013 after years of accelerated pace, said Wednesday, citing a report by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

China's urbanization rate was 45.68 percent in 2008 and is expected to rise to 52.28 percent in 2015, 57.67 percent in 2020 and 67.81 percent in 2030, and then stay at that level for a long time, the report said.
