In the last decade, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) has repeatedly called for deep collaboration between Hong Kong and other cities in the Pearl River Delta. More recently, the State Council of the People’s Republic of China has announced a new strategic plan for developing the Bay economy in Southern China by putting the strengths of Hong Kong, Macau and Guangdong together. Setting out against the wider policy context, this paper critically examines how Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) assess the challenges and opportunities when launching social services in Mainland China. More specially, the paper also discusses how government officials in China evaluate the growth of NGOs originally based in Hong Kong extending their social service provision in China. Policy implications will be drawn from the study to inform the debates of policy design and policy implementation across different regions in the Pearl River Delta.
