The "Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA)" was unveiled on 18 February. This key document from the Central Government sketches out the development direction for the region in the upcoming 15 years, and includes specific guidelines and positioning relating to Hong Kong.
The GBA is a huge market with a population of some 70 million and a GDP of around US$1.5 trillion. It is one of the most open and dynamic regions in Mainland China, and many Hong Kong companies are already active there. The Plan is expected to help generate many more opportunities for Hong Kong businesses.
The Chamber is delighted to have Mr Tommy Yuen, Director (Constitutional and Mainland Affairs) Special Duties, HKSAR Government, brief members on the key messages of the Plan, and the future direction of related work for the Government, at a Chamber roundtable luncheon on 18 March. At the roundtable, Ms Catherine Tsang, Partner at PwC China's Tax and Business Advisory Division, will also share her views on the latest GBA developments and how the region can learn from Hong Kong's success.
The roundtable luncheon will be conducted in English.
