There are 129 developing regions of country’s level and 584 of provinces’ level in China. Their total planning area is about 8 000 km\+2 and their developed area is about 1 500 km\+2. This paper briefly narrates the basic characteristics of Chinese developing regions as abundance of sorts, largeness in quantity and scale, centralized distribution along the sea, boundary and rivers; further summarizes their characteristics in the land development, which are taking expropriating the agricultural as their principal part with re construction of old cities as the second choice; taking impropriating the arable land as its principal part with developing all kinds of desolate mountainous areas and desolate land as the second choice; firstly expropriating then beginning to develop and taking the expropriated area large and using efficiency small as its characteristics. It concludes the four sorts of developing regions: development of arable land, re construction of old cities, development of intertidal zone, islands and desolates mountainous areas and lands. It analyzes the arising problems of irrationality of layout, leaving arable land unused, remising price low and management confusedly, and finally puts forward the countermeasures of managing uniformly the construction land of developing regions, changing the quomodo of economical increase and improving the efficiency of use and output of land.
