    Bauhinia Foundation Research Centre

    Hong Kong has played a leading role in terms of foreign investment, trade, financial and logistics services in the rapid economic growth of mainland China during the past two decades. However, the leading position of Hong Kong in China has recently been challenged by the increasing global integration of China and emerging cities such as Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. China.s source of foreign investment has been diversified. China has also changed from a position in shortage of capital to one of abundance. All these developments raise serious questions about the future role of Hong Kong in economic development in China. This study attempts to assess the changing role of Hong Kong in the Greater Pearl River Delta and China in general. The focus will be the consideration of risks and trends of marginalization of Hong Kong. It will also highlight Hong Kong.s continuing strengths and how they can be consolidated.
    There are five main objectives in this research, (1) to assess the overall development context of China and its implications for Hong Kong; (2) to review major features of the 11th five-year planning of Shenzhen, Guangdong and China; (3) to assess the current economic relations between Hong Kong and China, especially Shenzhen and the Pearl River Delta (PRD); (4) to analyze the planned infrastructure developments such as seaports, airports, railways and highways in Shenzhen and the Pearl River Delta; (5) the traditional strengths of Hong Kong will be identified and examined. The project will examine the degree of marginalization, if any, of Hong Kong. (SS05413)

  • Hong Kong People’s Attitude toward Living and Working in Mainland China
  • YEUNG Yue Man, WONG Ka Ying Timothy
    1 January 2002
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    In recent years, more and more Hong Kong people go to mainland China to buy properties and to work there. The trend accelerates Hong Kong-mainland integration on the one hand and creates pressures on Hong Kong.s property market on the other. It also poses challenges to the government.s housing policy and labor policy. The objective of this study is to systematically examine the Hong Kong public.s attitude toward living, buying properties and working in mainland China by means of telephone survey. The results of the survey will provide an important scientific basis for more accurately assessing the future dynamics of Hong Kong.s population, property market and job market. Such assessment is crucial for the government in formulation its housing policy, labor policy, and other social services policies. (SS01882)


  • Public Perception on the Housing Policy in Hong Kong
  • YEUNG Yue Man
    1 April 2001
    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    Housing policy has been a platform of public criticism towards the HKSAR Government since the handover. People seem to be unsatisfied with the shifting and even contradicting housing policies from time to time, which reflects the confusion of values among policy makers. Besides, the hope for recovery of the booming property market by which many people accumulate their wealth in the past, has been eroded to a large extent. People have grievances towards the government policy for the part of the cause. Against this backdrop, it is important to explore the public perception on existing housing policies comprehensively. The findings more or less give insights to future housing policy direction. (SS00752)
