The western Pearl River Delta is a resource-endowed and historically rich part of the region. Yet lacking a direct land link with Hong Kong, its development has lagged behind that of the eastern wing, which has undergone a rapid socio-economic transformation since 1978. This book builds around two themes - urban development and ports - to highlight how the western wing of the Delta has, over the past two decades, evolved a unique style of economic development and industrialization. It is poised for more rapid development if the bridge from Hong Kong to Zhuhai and Macao is constructed in the near future. Focusing on a relatively understudied part of the Delta, this book stimulates an understanding of one of the fastest-growing regions in China.
