CE backs Nansha plan

June 16, 2022

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today welcomed the central government’s promulgation of the Overall Plan for Deepening Globally Oriented Comprehensive Co-operation amongst Guangdong, Hong Kong & Macao in Nansha of Guangzhou.


The Nansha plan sets out five key development directions for the area, which include industry co-operation in innovation and technology, co-operation in youth innovation and entrepreneurship, high standard opening up, regulatory interface and connectivity, and high-quality urban development.


These directions correspond to policy areas which Hong Kong enjoys comparative advantages in and is determined to develop further, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government said.


It added that as stated in the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Nansha, positioned as a high standard gateway for opening up, is one of the major co-operation platforms in the bay area. With a clear perspective on Hong Kong, Macau and the wider world, the Nansha plan will become a key medium and provide strong support for the enhanced integration of Hong Kong and Macau into the overall national development.


Mrs Lam supplemented: “Based on new policies to be introduced by the governments of Guangdong Province and Guangzhou Municipality in Nansha, the Hong Kong SAR Government will support various sectors of the community in seizing the opportunities brought by the development of the bay area and the Nansha plan.


“Meanwhile, Hong Kong will leverage our advantages, especially our international networks and connections, as well as our outstanding professional services, to fully support Nansha in developing as a high standard gateway for opening up within the bay area, whilst expanding the scope of development for ourselves and our industries.”
