Greater Bay Area


The Greater Bay Area (“GBA”), formed of 9 thriving Guangdong cities and the Hong Kong and Macau Special Administrative Regions, plays a strategic role in China’s implementation of innovation-driven development and commitment to reform and opening-up. With a total population of over 86 million and GDP of USD 1,668.8 billion as of 2020* , the region offers abundant opportunities for international companies to tap into China’s I&T potential, and for mainland Chinese companies to expand to the world.

The National 14th Five-Year Plan

Under the 14th Five-Year Plan, the national development blueprint and action agenda for the five-year period up to 2025, GBA is envisaged as an international innovation centre.The Plan mentions promoting the development of Shenzhen-Hong Kong Loop as a major platform for GBA co-operation and deepening the Mainland’s I&T co-operation with Hong Kong.

New Northern Metropolis A Boost To I&T

Under the HKSAR government’s long-term Northern Metropolis Development Strategy, the San Tin Technopole will be developed to create a critical mass of I&T facilities offering greater economies of scale. Its relative proximity to the Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Zone (Shenzhen I&T Zone) is expected to further promote I&T collaboration between Hong Kong and Shenzhen, and complement the Science Park R&D hub in the city to fuel I&T development as the driving force for Hong Kong’s next era of economic growth.

Economic integration will pool together the complementary strengths of the GBA cities to create a strong clustering effect. Tech companies will be able to access an integrated pool of innovation resources from the region – from R&D expertise to manufacturing capacity and tax breaks – and tap the GBA synergy to enhance their competitiveness.
