This chapter analyses the development of the construction industry in the Pan-Pearl River Delta (Pan-PRD). It establishes an assessment system, covering resources, processes, efficiency, and environmental factors, to evaluate and rank the competitiveness of the construction industry in the nine mainland provinces of the Pan-PRD. The results show that the overall competitiveness of the construction industry is relatively higher in Guangdong, Hainan, and Hunan provinces and relatively lower in Guangxi, Sichuan, Jiangxi, and Guizhou provinces. The chapter concludes with recommendations for enhancing competitiveness at the regional level.
