It's unclear whether the information presented in this article covers Hong Kong and Macau, and the territories claimed but not administered by the PRC. — Instantnood 19:06, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

  • Research it and fix it. HK imports a lot of water from Guangzhou and, afaik, Macao entirely. SchmuckyTheCat 19:47, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
    Macau has its own reservoirs, with their catchwaters. — Instantnood 21:29, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

I created the article. I don't pay a lot of attention to the question you raise, but I believe we are talking here about mainland China. Probably we should have separate articles for Hong Kong, Macau and Tiawan. However as noted most water for Hong Kong and Macau must come from the mainland. Fred Bauder 21:06, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

I would just leave the title as is, but opinions differ. Fred Bauder 21:06, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for clarifying Fred. Water trade is nothing uncommon. — Instantnood 21:29, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Expanding and improving this article[edit]

This article covers a very important topic on which there are a number of recent, high-quality publications in English. I have added links to two ot them under external links: A report by the Pacific Institute and another one by the World Bank. This is just to encourage people interested in the topic to read these publications and summarize relevant parts of them in this article.--Mschiffler (talk) 15:13, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
