SYDNEY, March 30 (Xinhua) -- Sydney's population has reached 5 million, with a surge in people moving to high density, inner-city suburbs, a population report by the Australian Bureau of Statistics revealed Thursday.

Data collected up to June 2016 showed a significant increase, considering the figure was 4 million in the year 2000.

In the state of New South Wales, 78 percent of the population's increase was absorbed by Sydney.

There is some concern, however, that the rise has come at the expense of rural Australia, but chief executive officer of the Regional Australia Institute, Jack Archer, explained that the increased population in Sydney has come predominantly from overseas migrants.

"Regional areas in Australia are still growing, just not as fast as our big cities," he said.

"Younger people tend to go into the city to find work and then older people tend to migrate out, so it has a way of balancing itself out."

It's predicted that the number of people living in Sydney will surpass 6 million by the year 2028.

However, on current trends, Melbourne is on track to take over Sydney as the most populated city in Australia some time around 2050.

At the moment, around 40 percent of all Australians live in either Sydney or Melbourne, with that percentage expected to increase further.

But Archer believes Australia should find new ways of connecting migrants with rural Australia to revitalise regional communities.

"There's a huge opportunity to encourage migrants to move to some of these regional communities, because there are jobs available in the area," Archer said.


NANCHANG [url=http://www.teamsteelersjerseys.com/maurkice-pouncey-jersey/]Maurkice Pouncey Color Rush Jersey[/url] , Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- On an ordinary winter's day, hundreds of workers packed tonnes of navel oranges into boxes, taped them up and loaded them onto trucks in southern Jiangxi Province.

It was their busiest time of year after the fruit ripened in November.

""Yesterday I sent a batch to Urumqi, and soon I will send two batches to Heilongjiang Province more than 3,000 kilometers away [url=http://www.teamsteelersjerseys.com/cameron-heyward-jersey/]Cameron Heyward Color Rush Jersey[/url] ,"" said Li Feng, a worker in an e-commerce park in Anyuan County in southern Jiangxi.

""We have a maximum order of 7,000 batches a day. When orders flood in on e-commerce promotion days, we have to rush to the farmers' home to buy more oranges,"" said Jia Longfei [url=http://www.teamsteelersjerseys.com/leveon-bell-jersey/]Le'Veon Bell Color Rush Jersey[/url] , another worker of the park.

""It was only in the last two years that the remote county has been transformed into a busy logistics base for the oranges,"" said Qiu Hongbin, director of the county poverty-relief office.

Since 2016, the county government, which deemed roads-building as essential to the development of the county [url=http://www.teamsteelersjerseys.com/ben-roethlisberger-jersey/]Ben Roethlisberger Color Rush Jersey[/url] , has spent 391 million yuan (about 46 million dollars) to renovate and build over 330 kilometers of rural roads.

""After the rural roads were upgraded, the average logistics costs have been cut by about a third. Lowered costs helped the fruits sell well,"" Qiu said.

Located in east China, Jiangxi is mainly an agricultural province. Half of its population of 45 million live in rural areas.

In the last five years, the provincial government has spent 41 billion yuan (about 6.2 billion U.S. dollars) on rural roads. Authorities said better rural roads had reduced travel time [url=http://www.teamsteelersjerseys.com/antonio-brown-jersey/]Antonio Brown Color Rush Jersey[/url] , facilitated trade and allowed more movement of people and goods.

In the next three years, the province aims to upgrade and build 12,000 kilometers of rural roads.

Nationwide, Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for more efforts on the construction, maintenance and operation of rural roads as part of the country's battle against poverty. China aims to lift all people from poverty by 2020 to create a ""moderately prosperous society.""

""Efforts should be made to build good roads in rural areas and maintain them to ensure a better quality of life for farmers and accelerate agricultural modernization [url=http://www.teamsteelersjerseys.com/jack-lambert-jersey/]Jack Lambert Color Rush Jersey[/url] ,"" Xi said in December.

In the past five years, China has seen 1.28 million km of rural roads built or renovated, with 99.24 percent of townships and 98.34 percent of villages connected by asphalt or cement roads.

Xi's call has created fresh action on rural roads and mobilized action from ministerial and local authorities.

Last Friday, China's Ministry of Transport convened a meeting on rural roads. Minister Li Xiaopeng demanded ministry staff to make plans on rural roads development for the next three years, and focus on building roads for regions with entrenched poverty.

Li also demanded the ministry to pressure local authorities to meet targets and to provide technical guidance.

Experts said rural roads would help eliminate physical isolation and help people escape the poverty trap. They will also boost social and economic integration [url=http://www.teamsteelersjerseys.com/jerome-bettis-jersey/]Jerome Bettis Color Rush Jersey[/url] , and bring isolated members closer to local decision-making.

For years, poor infrastructure has impeded development in several mountainous areas in Yunnan province, whose main population are ethnic groups perennially troubled by poverty.

Resident He Lepao, 33, blamed the muddy roads as the reason he dropped out of school at third grade.

Living in Dehong Dai and Jingpo Autonomous Prefecture [url=http://www.teamsteelersjerseys.com/terry-bradshaw-jersey/]Terry Bradshaw Color Rush Jersey[/url] , He had to travel for hours from his home to the seat of the village committee about eight kilometers away. Road conditions were bad for the village of only 221 people.

""It was even impossible for an SUV to drive to my home during the rain season. I had to use tire chains for my motorcycle,"" He said.

Government funds came and cement was applied on the muddy eight kilometers in December.

""Finally I don't have to use the tire chains any more,"" He said.

""All-season roads bring more exchanges with the outside world for people living in remote areas. They also bring health, education and information services to them,"" said Zeng Kaijun [url=http://www.teamsteelersjerseys.com/javon-hargrave-jersey/]Black Javon Hargrave Jersey[/url] , an official with the Yunnan provincial department of transport.
