The Greater Bay Area (GBA), with a marked increase in its economic strength and regional competitiveness, possesses to develop into an international first-class bay area and a world-class city cluster. The promulgation of the Outline Development Plan for the GBA in February this year signified a new milestone in the development of the GBA. To grasp a better understanding of the GBA, the Mainland Liaison Committee is organising a technical visit to three of the GBA cities, namely Jiangmen (江門), Zhongshan (中山) and Zhuhai (珠海) (including Hengqing (橫琴)), in the western part of the Bay area. The 4-days-3-nights visit includes tours to some of the latest technology parks and innovation/commercial districts in the region as well as local historical and eco-tourism sites. Subject to further confirmation, meetings with planners from the local planning associations may also be arranged.
