On Rule of Law in Governmental Cooperation for Regional Economic Integration

Youqi SHI


Currently, economic globalization and regional economic integration are both in function, and as an international and regional varying factor, they profoundly influence and constrain the socio-economic development of all countries. In China, “to promote the regional economic integration in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, in the Yangtze Delta, and in the Pearl River Delta” has been stipulated in China’s Economic and Social Development of the Twelfth Five Year Plan Outline. Governmental cooperation is the inevitable choice in enhancing harmonic regional economic development under regional economic integration, and the fundamental requirement of governmental administration in the transfer of administrative regional economy to the territorial economy. To ensure the continuity, steadiness and optimal effect of governmental cooperation, law must be implemented to study the various potential legal problems so as to construct a strong legal operation system to guarantee the essential coordinative legitimate mechanism and provide excellent legal environment for the regional economic development.
