The Pearl River Delta in southern China symbolizes the country’s success in economic reform and development. The central government has decided to make the area larger and stronger in its ambitious plan to develop the Bay Area and transform it into a world-class cluster of cities through the integration of nine cities in Guangdong Province, as well as Hong Kong and Macao, China’s two special administrative regions. Interconnectivity and upgrading of industries will be priorities of the area, and the national development guidelines are expected to be released very soon. It will be a major challenge to coordinate the cities involved and cross the barriers of their separate administrative systems. What’s more, policymakers have to regulate the area’s real estate market frenzy to maintain healthy and sustainable economic growth.
