The Greater Bay Area initiative aims to consolidate the strengths of the 11 GBA cities to create an economic powerhouse, which will surpass the achievements of the other bay areas in the world, (i.e., Tokyo, San Francisco and New York).
The western GBA cities -- Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Jiangmen, Zhaoqing, Foshan and Macao – offer quite different prospects to the more familiar eastern ones, and possibly more promise for investors. Most of the western cities have been developing with a heavy emphasis on technology-intensive manufacturing, and their combined industrial value-added currently accounts for one-third of that of the entire GBA.
After 40 years of reform and opening-up, the western GBA has certainly achieved tremendous results. Perhaps more importantly, it still has great potential for further economic development.
To learn more about this part of the GBA, we have invited business pioneers with experience investing in the western GBA to share their insights on the development and opportunities available in the region.
