Formation of city is the inevitable result of industry and production factor conglomeration. There are firmly economic and social connections between the cities and their near region. Along with the development of economy, existing cities continuously expanding, burgeoning cities emerging cosmically, the various connections between cities strengthen and the urban system composed of different scale and level cities and towns is coming into being. The urban systems are controlling and affecting the development of world economy. It's meaningless to research the urban without inner land and to research region without cities.According to the development of urban system, domestic and international scholars bring forward some concepts on it, such as Metropolis District, Urban Agglomerations and Metropolitan Interlocking Region and so on. These concepts are used to analyze the space appearance of urbanism, which is composed of central city ,city edge district, urban district and satellite town. On the basis of these, the author puts forward the concept of Urban Region .The Urban Region can be divided into Great Urban Region, Medium Urban Region and Essential Urban Region. The author analyzes the basic feature of Urban Region , the internal structure of Urban Region and the developing stages of Urban Region .At the same time, the author puts forward the concept of the Urban Regional Economic Integration.The author thinks that Urban Regional Economic Integration should include 5 portions: the integration of the product market,service market and production factor in Urban Region; the integration of Urban Regional industrial distribution; the integration of Urban Regional spacing layout;the integration of Urban Regional infrastructure construction and management ;the integration of resources and environment development and management.
