The Zhujiang Delta region is the natural hinterland of Hong Kong. It has experienced astonishing growth since 1978 after the introduction of economic reforms and the open policy in China. Its subsequent development is, in many ways, closely related with that of Hong Kong. In fact, far-reaching economic integration has taken place between Hong Kong and the Zhujiang Delta. After China’s entry to the WTO on December 11, 2001, such economic integration will be further strengthened. A world-class city-region is being formed around the Hong Kong and Zhujiang Delta area.

Pressing issues and concerns of effective resource management, governance and sustainability are emerging due to accelerated industrialization, urbanization, globalization and regional integration. They will affect the future development and prosperity of the region. The book is a collective effort by leading scholars from Hong Kong, Mainland China, USA and Germany and offers updated and in-depth analyses of economic integration, migration, urbanization, regional development, resource management and urban/regional governance in the Hong Kong-Zhujiang Delta region in the context of development and transformation of Hong Kong and Mainland China.
