PRESENTING COMPANY STAGE
EXPLORING CHINA’S GREATER BAY AREA
China’s incredible economic growth over the past few decades is due to new reform and opening-up policies. One of China’s major reforms included the establishment of Shenzhen as a special economic zone just four decades ago. In only a few decades, incentives for entrepreneurism and both domestic and foreign capital completely transformed the former rural fishing village into a major metropolis. In no time at all, the once fishing village is now the city with a sea of modern skyscrapers and the third richest city in China. Shenzhen is now regarded as China’ tech hub and known to many as China’s Silicon Valley. The city has over 1 million private companies and is home to tech giants including internet giant Tencent, carmaker BYD, and telecom giants Huawei and ZTE.
WHAT IS THE GREATER BAY AREA?
Shenzhen is a rising star in its own right, but it is also part of the Greater Bay Area (GBA), which is comprised of 11 cities that are part of a regional economic development plan focused on growing the region by leveraging their competitive advantages to complement each other. The GBA (often referred to by the Chinese as 9+2) consists of 9 mainland Chinese cities and two special administrative regions, Hong Kong and Macao. For example, Shenzhen takes advantage of its strength in technology and innovation, their next door neighbour Hong Kong, takes advantage of their leading international financial services experience, and cities like Dongguan and Guangzhou leverage their manufacturing skills. According to China Centre for International Economic Exchanges, the GBA is estimated to have a total economic output of USD $4.62 trillion which will make it the world’s largest bay, greater than both the Tokyo Bay Area and the New York bay Area.
