HK’s Bay Area is Breaking Down the Boundaries

All attention was on President Xi Jinping’s economic agenda for China as the Boao Forum in Hainan province drew to a close nearly four weeks ago. Few noticed there was a panel discussion running simultaneously, in which Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam, Guangdong’s governor and other political and business heavyweights debated plans for the “Greater Bay Area”.

Limited detail has emerged so far, but one theme is beyond doubt – the Greater Bay Area aims to break geographical boundaries to foster economic collaboration in the southern China powerhouse.
