The GBA initiative was officially launched on 18 February 2019 by the State Council with the release of the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area. The plan aims at transforming Hong Kong, Macau and nine cities in Guangdong province into an integrated economic and innovation hub. While the coronavirus outbreak might have interrupted the initiative, the GBA is well and truly back in business.
With service sector contribution to local GDP forecast to grow by 25% over the next 10 years, and a population estimated to top 100 million people in the same period, GBA will be, without doubt, a huge focus of opportunity in Southern China. So what does GBA mean to you and your business? Which areas should you pay attention to?
In our upcoming webinar, we will provide an overview of the GBA for Asian businesses and address some of the questions around the following topics:
- What is China’s GBA initiative – the key cities and key industries
- GBA’s key government policies and infrastructure development
- GBA’s key foreign investors and why they come to the GBA
- GBA under the coronavirus outbreak and its growth after the outbreak
- How Vistra’s solutions can assist international clients in optimising their investments in the GBA
Join us on Thursday, 28 May 2020, 11:00am to 12:00pm (Hong Kong Time) for this informative webinar.
