Professor Richard Weixing Wu, Dean of FSS of UM, was invited by the School of Government of Peking University earlier to deliver a speech titled “Innovation and Challenges of the Public Administration System for the Integrated Development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area under One Country, Two Systems” at the Peking University Public Policy Forum.

Dean Hu pointed out that the integrated development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is a process of establishing consensus and forming a community of interests through in-depth exchanges and mutual influence. It is an important way to break through development bottlenecks and solve deep-seated problems. Integrated development under “one country, two systems” is a new topic currently facing us. How to achieve economic and social integration under the two systems, whether it is necessary to create a third administrative subject to promote integrated development, and where organizational power comes from, etc., are all issues that need to be addressed in the field of public administration.

The forum also arranged a discussion session. Peking University students had in-depth discussions with Dean Hu on topics such as the industrial development prospects of the Hengqin-Shenzhen Cooperation Zone, the cooperation between Zhuhai and Macao, the design of Guangdong-Hong Kong cooperation mechanism, and the coordinated development of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei.
