The Greater Bay Area (GBA) encompasses a US$1.4 trillion economy within the Guangdong, Macau and Hong Kong region designated by China’s central government as part of an integrated and ambitious development plan. The zone is host to 17 Fortune Global 500 companies and some of China’s leading private-sector firms. But it’s often hard to distinguish the commercial reality from the marketing rhetoric. How will the GBA Initiative actually play out at ground level? What will Hong Kong’s high-speed rail link and the Hong Kong-Macau-Zhuhai bridge mean for business? Will Hong Kong compete or collaborate with Shenzhen?

A panel of AmCham business leaders in infrastructure, real estate, finance, transport, and manufacturing will give their expert views on how to identify the GBA’s commercial opportunities and challenges, and what to expect in the coming five years.
