This chapter presents four main conclusions about regional cooperation which can be drawn from the study of Pan-Pearl River Delta (Pan-PRD) regionalization. First, although the mega regions in different parts of the world are all the result of rapid transformation in the face of globalization, each has unique rationales, developmental patterns, fiscal capacities, managerial abilities, and levels of experience with regional governance and planning. Second, uneven development and the presence of different institutional systems within the Pan-PRD region pose great challenges for decision makers in the creation of a common market. Third, the members of the Pan-PRD are not efficiently connected at present, which has generated growing demand for the development of regional infrastructure to minimize regional disparity. Finally, urban and industrial development in the Pan-PRD should be considered in a new and broader regional context to increase land-use efficiency and optimize resource allocation.

Keywords:   regional cooperation, Pan-Pearl River Delta, Pan-PRD, globalization, regional infrastructure, land-use efficiency, resource allocation
