The Greater Bay Area

The Greater Bay Area comprises the two Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao, and the nine municipalities of Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Huizhou, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing in Guangdong Province.

As one of the most open and economically vibrant regions in China, the Greater Bay Area plays a significant strategic role in the overall development of the country. The development of the Greater Bay Area is not only a new attempt to break new ground in pursuing opening up on all fronts in a new era, but also a further step in taking forward the practice of “one country, two systems”.

The Outline Development Plan for the Greater Bay Area was promulgated in February 2019. This Plan is an important outline document guiding the current and future cooperation and development of the Greater Bay Area.

  • Best opportunity to understand the vast business potential in the Greater Bay Area.
  • Exclusive chance to learn the valuable experience from prominent Australian companies with presence in the Greater Bay Area.
