The Pan-Pearl River Delta: An Emerging Regional Economy in a Globalizing China

Front Cover
Yue-man Yeung, Jianfa Shen
Chinese University Press, 2008 - Education - 595 pages

In June 2004, top leaders from Guangdong and the surrounding eight provinces of Guangxi, Yunnan, Sichuan, Guizhou, Hainan, Hunan, Jiangxi, and Fujian, together with those of the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao, met in Hong Kong, Macao, and Guangzhou and gave birth to Pan-PRD regional grouping (hence the shorthand of "9+2"). This book studies the establishment, amid much fanfare, of this new regional grouping, and its roots in the interaction between globalization and regionalization.
