As the first "testing ground" for deep integration between the mainland and the special administrative regions under the "one country, two systems" framework, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area faces challenges of integrating different social systems and legal frameworks. Policies and regional practices provide strong support for this integration. The diversity and complexity of the main bodies and legal systems in the Greater Bay Area present a series of problems, including the lack of an integrated regional collaborative legislative body, legal system conflicts, and the insufficient effectiveness of regional administrative agreements. To address these issues, it is necessary to establish a regular and continuous regional collaborative legislative mechanism, including the implementation of centralized legislation, improvement of the legal and regulatory system, and advancement of regional coordinated development agreements to legal status, thereby promoting the integration of Hong Kong and Macao into the development framework.
