Administrative barriers are impeding China’s regional cooperation and governance. As administrative regions face more and more common issues, the old model of economic development based on administrative regions is no longer suited to the new reality. Regional governance calls for local governments to cooperate in order to solve common region-wide issues.

The main actors in regional governance remain the relevant local governments, but the regional governance process includes communication, discussion and negotiation among the local governments, and between them and societal groups.

The formation of a cooperative mechanism among local governments will facilitate regional integration. Inter-government cooperation may be arranged by the central government, or initiated by local governments themselves.

Modes of cooperation may be driven by two factors: mutual benefit, or arrangement by larger administrative units. Mechanisms of local inter-governmental cooperation include consultation, policymaking, implementation and regulation. China still lacks relevant legal and policy framework for inter-governmental cooperation, which stands in sharp contrast to the trend of regionalization of economic development.

Please join us to further discuss these topics with Professor Long Yang.
