 Since economic reform in 1978, the relationship between Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta (PRD)  has changed a lot.  Economically, with economic restructuring in the PRD, the former model of “front shops back factories” is diminishing.  Socially, with the rise in per capita income in the PRD, the consumption pattern between Hong Kong and the PRD has changed too. How to plan and coordinate the development of Hong Kong with the PRD will be a major challenge for Hong Kong.
