Beijing delivered its 53-page “Greater Bay Area Development Plan” three years ago to announce China’s ambitions for its new economic regional powerhouse. Measures were unveiled to deepen the integration among cities. The two-way interactions between Hong Kong/Macau and the Mainland are unprecedented.
Coordination between cities with these governmental policies is already having significant impact in areas of innovation, technology, financial services, logistics, medical services, education, art & culture, tourism, and sustainable development.
