Officially launched in February 2019, the Greater Bay Area initiative aims to transform the two Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau, and the nine cities in Guangdong Province into an integrated economic and innovation hub. Although COVID-19 may have interrupted the initiative, the GBA is now back on track and ready to grow even stronger!   

During this session, Mr Todd Handcock and Director-General Stephen Phillips will provide an overview of the GBA and address some of the unique opportunities that the GBA has to offer. Specifically, opportunities that Hong Kong can assist foreign investors in optimizing their investments.

*For participants in Canada, the session will be held on Tuesday 27th October at 5:00PM-6:00PM (PDT)  /  8:00PM-9:00PM (EDT)
