This study aims to offer a preliminary assessment of the impacts of Hong Kong on institutional reforms in the Greater Bay Area. The GBA aspires to be an international innovation centre and a world-class city cluster. The existing literature and policy discussions on the Greater Bay Area initiative see it as a strategy for regional development. The typical argument stresses the hindrance role of the existing constitutional order of “One country, two systems” and the different institutional settings created by such order to the vision of regional cooperation. This article instead examines how Hong Kong stimulates institutional reforms in the Greater Bay Area. This study will look into the administrative reforms and legal reforms in Shenzhen Qianhai, and examine how the statuary bodies in Hong Kong offer a model for their counterparts in Shenzhen, and how legal professionals from Hong Kong contribute to the legal reforms in Shenzhen. This study will use data from interviews, archives and media reports.
