A survey on key drivers for success
Businesses overwhelmingly support China’s Greater
Bay Area initiative, according to a YouGov survey
commissioned jointly by KPMG and the Hong Kong
General Chamber of Commerce.
The two-month survey was conducted in June and
July 2017 and received responses from 614 business
executives in Hong Kong (410), Guangzhou (91),
Shenzhen (82) and other GBA cities (31).
Of the total
respondents, close to 65 percent were at a senior
management level, while around 35 percent were
middle management or below. The companies they
represent were from a wide range of industries,
including manufacturing (157), distribution (143),
e-commerce (73), retail (70), logistics (58), and others.
The idea of Hong Kong, Macau and Guangdong working
together to create GBA resonated with the survey
respondents with 80 percent indicating their support for
integrated development across the region.
