Beijing, Jan 29 (Agencies): The Big Chinese Dragon is not going to enter the record books over building the biggest city, as of now. Authorities in southern China's Guangdong province have denied planning to unite nine towns to create the world's biggest city in the Pearl River delta.

"The reports were totally false. There is no such plan," Guo Yuewen, spokesman for the Communist party's provincial committee, told the official China Daily on Saturday.

Media had earlier reported on a project to unite nine urban areas -- including both Guangzhou and Shenzhen -- into a huge city with a population of 42 million, according to the China Daily.
 
The Pearl River delta was one of the first Chinese areas to open up to foreign business in the 1980s and is now among its richest, a giant manufacturing hub that generates around 10 per cent of the country's GDP.
