On March 26, 2024, New Zealand delegation led by H.E. Ambassador Grahame Morton visited CDI. The visit sparked in-depth discussions on various topics, including economic policies concerning the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA), development progress of the GBA, and cross border industrial cooperation within the GBA. CDI experts introduced the latest trends of Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park (HSITP) located in the Lok Mak Chou Loop sitting on the Hong Kong-Shenzhen border. With preferential policy incentives in place, the HSITP will greatly facilitate the cross-border flow of production resources including capitals, talents and data. In the meanwhile, Shenzhen is becoming the forefront of reform and opening-up with the digital upgrading of traditional industries and the expansion of emerging industries. Both sides agree that China and New Zealand should explore cooperation projects in areas such as digital economy, digital trade and artificial intelligence.
