My research focuses on the following areas: (a) intergovernmental relations in Greater China (between Hong Kong and Mainland China; cross-boundary cooperation between Hong Kong and south China); (b) policy process (the politics of policy process in Hong Kong; public participation/civic engagement in Hong Kong and Greater China); (c) policy analysis (politics of regional cooperation in the Greater Pearl River Delta, China; development strategies in the Pearl River Delta, China); (d) urban governance (politics of planning and urban governance in mega cities in China).

Abstract: Economic cooperation between Hong Kong and Mainland China, especially Guangdong province, has flourished since the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region in 1997. The landmark is the conclusion of the Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA) between Hong Kong and the Mainland in 2003. CEPA covers liberalisation of trade in goods, liberalisation of trade in services, mutual recognition of professional qualifications, and other trade facilitation measures. This paper uses the collaborative governance regime framework to analyse the economic cooperation between Hong Kong and Mainland China under CEPA. This case shows that if there are environmental conditions generating incentives for both parties to cooperate, a committed leadership on both sides to drive the regime, and institutional arrangements that could facilitate the collaborative dynamics, effective collaboration between players from different political and institutional backgrounds can still be achieved.
