The key idea of sustainable development in the fields of economics, demographic politics, and regional planning remains a significant issue. The ability to create a new sustainable planning model is essential to all our futures, but it will require sharing experience between different countries and study fields. This was indicated by Professor Qizhi Mao at the 2013 International Conference on Spatial Planning and Sustainable Development (30 Aug. - 1 Sept. 2013, Beijing). Professor Yan Li and Anrong Dang (2014) also emphasized the importance of sharing case studies. Unfortunately, spatial planning studies cannot be conducted under the same conditions as laboratory experiments, which can be tested. In addition, different countries have different situations regarding their economy, religion, and culture. Thus, sustainable development is interpreted differently.
