Discussing the Greater Bay Area in New York City

The significance of the Greater Bay Area and Hong Kong’s role in this initiative must be presented and executed well in Hong Kong and the mainland. We must also promote the initiative abroad, explain Hong Kong’s role and the Greater Bay Area’s significance to the city.

Yesterday afternoon, I attended the Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. Then at night, I flew to New York to give a speech for the American business sector on the Greater Bay Area, and then leaving that afternoon to Beijing to continue meetings.

Three days ago, more than a dozen South Korean National Assembly members, accompanied by the consul general, came to my office and talked for an hour. We focused our conversation on South Korea’s involvement in the Greater Bay Area and the opportunities that can arise.

The next two months, I will also be invited to speak in Japan and Australia regarding the Greater Bay Area initiative.
