Pearl River Delta

The Pearl River Delta (PRD) or Zhusanjiao , in southern [People's Republic of China] is the low-lying area alongside the [Pearl River] [estuary] where the Pearl River flows into the [South China Sea] . Since economic liberalisation was adopted by the Chinese government in the late 1970s, the delta has become one of the leading economic regions and a major manufacturing center of China and the world. The Chinese government hopes that the manufacturing in [Guangdong] , combined with the financial and service economy and traditional capitalistic influence in [Hong Kong] , will create an economic gateway attracting foreign capital throughout [mainland China] .

Location and demographics
The PRD covers nine [prefectures] of the province of Guangdong, namely [Guangzhou] , [Shenzhen] , [Zhuhai] , [Dongguan] , [Zhongshan] , [Foshan] , [Huizhou] , [Jiangmen] and [Zhaoqing] , and the [SARs] of [Hong Kong] and [Macau] . It had a population approximately of 60 million people in 2008.

The eastern side of the PRD (Shenzhen, Dongguan), dominated by foreign capitals, is the most developed economically and polluted. The western areas (Foshan, Zhuhai, Zhongshan, Jiangmen), dominated by local private capitals, are open for development. New transport links between Hong Kong, Macau and Zhuhai in the PRD are expected to open up new areas for development and facilitate trade within the region. The proposed 50-kilometre [Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge] will be the longest in the world.
