This chapter explores the considerable expansion and intensification of cross-boundary relations between Hong Kong and the Mainland in the years since 1997, and especially since 2003. Greater integration has brought new challenges to health, environmental and transport policies and has given rise to greater co-ordination of economic and infrastructural programmes. The urge to regulate cross-boundary interactions has caused the government to move away from the tradition of “positive non-interventionism” towards a more activist, interventionist role. The huge growth in cross-boundary activities and co-operation since 1997 has also prompted the government to reform and expand its institutional framework for managing these activities and co-ordination with the mainland authorities.
