PC Yu, China Committee Chairman, led a business mission to Dongguan from 22 to 23 March. Members visited OPPO Mobile Telecommunications, Tianan Cyber Park and Lianke International Information Industrial Park, among others.
“I was deeply impressed by the ever-changing development,” said PC Yu, the Chamber’s China Committee Chairman, who led the 32-member delegation to Dongguan on 22-23 March. Noting its long-standing reputation as the “world’s factory,” his recollection from previous visits was of a traditional industrial city with a pollution problem. Those days have gone.
“The city has undergone a face-lift in recent years thanks to its ongoing efforts to transform itself – not just by upgrading manufacturing, but also by improving its ecology and quality of life.”
These improvements have been given a further boost by the GBA initiative, which aims to better connect 11 cities, including Hong Kong and Macao, through infrastructure upgrading, coordinated development and industrial transformation. The impact can be already seen in action in Dongguan and Zhuhai in their new and upgraded industrial parks and increasingly good living environment. Read more about the mission in our cover story
