The development plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Great Bay Area, which includes nine cities in Guangdong Province as well as Hong Kong and Macao, was first mentioned in China’s 2017 central government work report. Commenting on the bay area development, Chen En, executive director of the Center of Studies on the Regional Cooperation of Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, said the establishment of this new bay area has two goals: One is to build a world-class bay area economy; the other is to establish a base and platform for enterprises in inland China, Hong Kong and Macao to go global. This new bay area is not only a city cluster with multiple systems, institutions, paths, cultures and centers but also a system of mutually complementary industries, Chen suggested.
