Pearl River is the correct answer.
The Pearl River Delta, or 珠江三角洲 (Zhujiang Delta), is an emerging mega metropolitan area in Southern China with Canton as a major settlement north of Hong Kong and Macao. The combined population of this economic hub comprises of 57+ million people almost matching the entire population of the Italian Republic.
The river delta, also known as the Golden Delta of Guangdong, is formed by three major rivers, the West River, the North River, and the East River. Above that, the flat land of the Pearl River Delta is criss-crossed by a network of tributaries and distributaries of the Pearl River which separates the area into two parts. The North and the West Rivers converge to flow into the South China Sea and the Pearl River in the west, while the East River flows into the Pearl River from east.
The industrial cities in the Pearl River Delta used to be called the "Workbench of the World", especially in the 1980s and 1990s, due the presence of industrial parks populated with factories that were largely funded by foreign direct investments. In 2001, nearly five percent of the world's goods were produced here.
