The Next Explosive Leap with GBA Policies

8:30–9:30 pm
Zoom Webinar

Organizer: UChicago Yuen Campus in Hong Kong


Beijing delivered its 53-page “Greater Bay Area Development Plan” three years ago to announce China’s ambitions for its new economic regional powerhouse. Measures were unveiled to deepen the integration among cities. The two-way interactions between Hong Kong/Macau and the Mainland are unprecedented.

Coordination between cities with these governmental policies is already having significant impact in areas of innovation, technology, financial services, logistics, medical services, education, art & culture, tourism, and sustainable development.

What impact will these policies mean for citizens of the GBA? How will they benefit enterprises and accelerate development on different fronts?  Hear our experts discuss whether the GBA can achieve its ultimate objectives and claim its role as a global innovation hub and engine for growth.
