The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area plan, which is part of China’s urbanization strategy, begins to take shape, that will be fully established by 2020 and thereafter by 2030 will become a global first-class bay area and city cluster with global advanced manufacturing, innovation, international shipping, financial and trade center


At the fifth conference of the twelfth National People’s Congress held on 5 March 2017, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang put forward a blueprint for the development of a city cluster in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area will not only drive economic development in southern China but also provide strong support for an upgraded economy in China. Certainly, it will play a vital role in successfully implementing the Belt and Road Initiative.

Currently, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area plan is taking shape. The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area plan has been submitted to China's top economic planner, the National Development & Reform Commission, at the end of June 2017. The plan outlines the target, development direction and major tasks of the Greater Bay Area, which comprises Hong Kong, Macao and nine cities in Guangdong province-Dongguan, Foshan, Guangzhou, Huizhou, Jiangmen, Shenzhen, Zhaoqing, Zhongshan and Zhuhai. The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area’s eleven cities have a total population of nearly 67 million, which is greater than the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, the world’s largest city cluster with a population of 44 million. The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area also has a combined GDP of US$1.34 trillion, which is lower than the US$1.61 trillion of Greater New York and US$1.78 trillion of Greater Tokyo.

According to the timeline, a globally competitive cluster of metropolises in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area will be almost fully established by 2020, while by 2030, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area will become a global first-class bay area, city cluster and a global advanced manufacturing, innovation, international shipping, financial and trade center.

Register for the conference to be ahead of the competition and get access to critical information. Be part of all forward-thinking companies making concrete plans to participate in the preceding infrastructure projects to realize China’s urbanization strategy through the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area infrastructure projects.
