Abstract: Advanced regions in China are now confronted with the issue of integrating the dualistic urban and rural development into a unitary system,which is the solution to rural revitalization with Chinese characteristics.Based on urban-rural development theories,the experience of developed economies,and the urban-rural development policies in China,this paper redefines Integrated Urban-rural Development (IURD) as a regime with highly developed urban economy and built environment,equalized urban-rural relations,and preserved rural functions and features.Based on the retheorization of IURD,this paper develops an indicator system to quantitatively assess IURD with its validity tested in the evaluation study of China's megacity regions.At the end,policy implications are provided.
