Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Development Office stages roving exhibition at universities to showcase Greater Bay Area opportunities (with photos)

     The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Development Office under the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau is staging a Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) roving exhibition from today (January 17) until the end of March at the campuses of eight universities and at the Civic Education Resource Centre of Youth Square, with the aim of introducing to students and young people the enormous opportunities brought about by GBA development to Hong Kong. The Commissioner for the Development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Ms Maisie Chan, reached out to young people on campus and encouraged them to grasp the opportunities of GBA development to realise their aspirations.
     Ms Chan said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government has all along attached great importance to both GBA development and youth development, and has introduced a number of policy measures in various areas to support Hong Kong residents and enterprises, including young people, to make good use of the significant opportunities brought about by GBA development.
     Ms Chan said, "Under the 'one country, two systems' principle, Hong Kong has the distinctive advantage of enjoying strong support of the motherland and being closely connected to the world, and Hong Kong young people are innovative with a global vision and are full of vigour. The HKSAR Government will seek more policy innovations to support Hong Kong young people to unleash their strengths on a bigger stage in the GBA, and provide concrete and targeted support to Hong Kong young people aspiring to set up their businesses and develop their career in the Mainland cities of the GBA."
     Ms Chan visited the exhibition at Hong Kong Baptist University, and had candid exchanges with the students there. She encouraged them to study hard to better equip themselves, and to grasp the opportunities of GBA development through internship, entrepreneurship and employment opportunities in the GBA to keep pace with the developments of the country.
     The roving exhibition kicked off at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Hong Kong Baptist University today. It offers rich information including the work of the HKSAR Government in taking forward GBA development in different areas, the diversified measures to support Hong Kong young people's development in the GBA, various support services and channels to disseminate practical information about the GBA, etc, thereby enabling visitors to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the development of the GBA, and hoping that more Hong Kong young people could get on board the express train of GBA development.
