Webinar : Your GBA Winning Strategy via Hong Kong (ASEAN Edition)


The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) comprises the two Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao, and the nine municipalities in Guangdong Province. While the land accounts for less than 1% and population less than 5% of Mainland’s total, GBA contributed 12% of Mainland’s GDP in 2019, and an economic size similar to that of Canada. 

"One Country, Two Systems and Three Jurisdictions" are the unique characteristics of the GBA. Hong Kong with its unique status as an international financial, arbitration and talent centre, and more importantly, its low-and-simple tax system, all makes Hong Kong the ideal location for ASEAN companies to kick-start their GBA adventure here. 

Join us for a discussion to explore business opportunities in the GBA, how to tap into this flourishing market via Hong Kong.
