China Reveals Blueprint for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area

 (Yicai  Global) Feb. 18 --China unveiled a blueprint for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area on Monday.

According to the blueprint, building the  Greater Bay Area comes as a latest attempt to enhance China's reform and  opening-up policy, as well as a fresh practice of promoting the  principle of  "One Country, Two Systems".

The blueprint outlines short-term plans for the area until 2022 and long-term outlook for 2035. 

The Greater Bay Area encompasses Special  Administrative Region (SAR) of Hong Kong and SAR of Macao, as well as  nine cities in southern China's Guangdong Province, including Guangzhou,  Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Dongguan, Huizhou, Zhongshan, Foshan, Zhaoqing and  Jiangmen.

The Greater Bay Area Initiative, which was first  mentioned in China's 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020), plans to combine  the three regions in order to turn it into one of the world's top bay  areas and world-class city clusters.
