In the past two decades, Hong Kong and Guangdong formed a 'front-end shop and back-end factory" arrangement. This model underpinned the export competitiveness of PRD and gave this region its reputation as 'The World's Factory". However, with the transformation and upgrading of Guangdong's economy, Hong Kong is increasingly facing challenges in maintaining this economic model.
Meanwhile, the economic development strategies introduced by Premier Li Keqiang also brought significant impact on Guangdong. In response to this, Guangdong government has initiated a series of strategies to transform its economic structure, which provides both challenges and opportunities for Hong Kong.
In particular, the establishment of three new experimental zones in Guangdong (i.e. Qianhai, Hengqin and Nansha) could provide further market access and more investment opportunities for Hong Kong, especially for Hong Kong's leading role in the RMB offshore market.
