SupChina and AABANY Present: The Greater Bay Area – China’s Mega Cities

AABANY members and Asia Practice Committee members
may register free of charge by clicking on the link above

With 11 cities, anchored by Guangdong, Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Macau, the Greater Bay Area is the urban future of Southern China. With a combined population of 70 million people and occupying just 1% of China’s landmass, it powers 12% of China’s total GDP. It aims to stitch nine mainland cities and two special administrative regions into a new high technology and innovation hub.

Central to this concept are infrastructure projects.  Two of three key infrastructure projects have been completed: Inaugurated in 2018, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge significantly reduces travel times from Hong Kong to Zhuhai and Macau.  The second is the Express Rail Link, which also opened in 2018 and connects Hong Kong to Shenzhen and Guangdong, and subsequently to China’s vast high-speed rail network.

Join us as we discuss:

  1. Economic and political ramifications of this plan.
  2. How Hong Kong’s recent political turmoil affects the plan.
  3. What this means for the international community.

Date: December 4, 2019

Tickets: $25 per person.

This event is FREE for SupChina ACCESS, AABANY, and JAMS members.
