We are pleased to see the HKSAR Government expending such great effort to promote the Northern Metropolis and the Hetao Shenzhen-Hong Kong Science and Technology Innovation Co-operation Zone and to accelerate coordinated development with Shenzhen.
The construction of the Greater Bay Area is the country’s key strategy for reform and opening up in the new era. It is also a new endeavour for regional cooperation in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao. As such, innovative thinking is required to achieve strong alliance of the Greater Bay Area urban clusters.
Hong Kong can serve as a “central city” to drive the development of surrounding areas.
We hope the HKSAR Government will give greater support to Hong Kong’s industrial and commercial sectors. Such efforts will maximize Hong Kong’s unique strengths and functional roles.
CGCC will continue to take active part in China’s ongoing reform and open pursuits, and maximize both the “benefits of being one country” and the “advantages of having two systems” to promote greater involvement of Hong Kong’s business community in the wider development of China.
Hong Kong’s business community and society should make good use of
the convenience brought by these infrastructure projects and capture the
opportunities from regional cooperation to open up new space for Hong
Kong’s long-term development.
It is imperative for the HKSAR Government to increase land supply in
the short, medium and long terms through optimal use of existing land
resources and expansion of developable land space on many fronts to
provide sustainable and stable land supply to drive Hong Kong’s
development in the long run.
The participation of Hong Kong’s industrial and commercial sectors in the regional cooperation platform will not only create a more diversified market, but also fully leverage Hong Kong’s strengths to meet our country’s needs.
It is hoped that the HKSAR Government will provide appropriate support to affected Hong Kong businesses in light of the recent Sino-US trade disputes and drive Hong Kong’s industries toward high value-added and diversified development.
