Changes are analysed according to size of population, by major functions, and by geographical location. Large and medium-sized cities grew more rapidly than small ones, accounting for 85 per cent of the urban population in 1982. By function, provincial capitals and mining-manufacturing cities grew more rapidly and are expected to develop further. Cities of coastal regions develop most quickly but in the hinterland regions landward from the coast, city size is more evenly developed because of newly erected cities. In the remote border region of the interior new cities have draw large populations. (TNC).
