The Greater Bay Area

One of China’s current strategic drives is the integration of cities within the Pearl River Delta and surrounding area (Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Zhuhai to name but a few) to form the so-called Greater Bay Area (GBA). This thriving area of the Chinese economy, which has long been a hot-bed for economic reforms, is blessed with cutting-edge technology companies, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and a growing consumer demand for Western products, such as food and drink.


Inclusive of Hong Kong, rich in Scottish heritage and networks, the GBA initiative offers a wide range of opportunities for Scotland to engage. These will then be explored in more detail through 4 sessions delivered by experts in their fields:

    • West to East: Unlocking the technology market opportunity in China
