On February 6, 2023, Chinese mainland and Hong Kong border fully reopened. The full resumption of flow of people at the Shenzhen-Hong Kong ports will greatly facilitate the interconnection between Hong Kong, Macao and mainland cities, stimulating the demand for tourism, shopping, business, and investment, etc., accelerating the integration of technology, capital and other resources, and contributing to the economic development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA).
In the face of new challenges in the global economy, the GBA development should be oriented towards more open cooperation. Therefore, in the future, how to further strengthen the GBA cooperation mechanism, promote economic and trade exchanges, and strengthen high-level cooperation between GBA cities is crucial.
In this forum, organized by the China Development Institute, experts from the GBA were gathered together to discuss how Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao should deepen regional connectivity, and expand dialogues in terms of coordinated industrial development and integrated social development.
