Woetzel, Jonathan

Senior Director of McKinsey & Company

Jonathan Woetzel, Senior Director of McKinsey & Company explains how urbanization is affecting the lives of billions of people in China. He explores the concept of new urbanization – building a cluster of cities, instead of one single city, which comes with zero-carbon emission and no pollution. He predicts that China’s urbanization will continue for another 20 to 25 years. In the future, he says, it does not matter which province in China you are from, everyone can just refer to themselves as “city people”.

Jonathan Woetzel, Director at McKinsey & Company’s Greater China office, explores the phenomenon of urbanisation in China and its consequences.
