Watch: Opportunities for U.S. Partnerships in China’s Greater Bay Area Region
This week (Sept. 8), Bay Area Council Economic Institute Senior Director Sean Randolph presented the findings of the Institute’s June study on the China Greater Bay Area to an audience in the U.S. and China organized by the US-China Business Council (USCBC). The forum was the first in a new series of USCBC programs that will focus on perspectives on China from U.S. states. The China Greater Bay Area (GBA), a strategic initiative that links Hong Kong and Macau with eleven cities in Guangdong Province, aims to create a Chinese megaregion that will present significant economic opportunities for companies in the San Francisco and Silicon Valley Bay Area. The Institute’s report assessed the Greater Bay Area plan, its goals, challenges to its implementation, the distinctive role played by Hong Kong, and opportunities for businesses and organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area to participate, especially in the climate resilience, healthcare, electric and autonomous vehicles, biomedicine and fintech industries.
