Greater Bay Area Offers Abundance of Opportunities

Hong Kong, with the full support of the Motherland and being closely connected with the world, has become a global trading hub and an international financial centre. The State Council’s promulgation of the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) on 18 February 2019 signified a new milestone in Hong Kong’s development. The GBA is strategically positioned to be: vibrant world-class city cluster, a globally influential international innovation and technology hub, an important support pillar for the Belt and Road Initiative, a showcase for in-depth cooperation between the Mainland China and Hong Kong and Macao, and a quality living circle for living, working and travelling.
Through the integration of the rich resources and innovation-driven development in this cluster of cities, the GBA provides a new impetus for Hong Kong’s economic development and brings new opportunities for the next generation.

Wars Against Epidemics in Hong Kong

In December 2019, Mainland authorities notified Hong Kong of an unknown strain of pneumonia detected in Wuhan. The city soon found itself catapulted into its most severe infectious disease crisis since the 2003 SARS epidemic. Looking back over history, Hong Kong people have been no strangers to epidemics. More than a hundred years ago, the city was gripped by the bubonic plague, then measles and tuberculosis in the 1950s and 1960s, the avian flu in the 1990s, followed by SARS in 2003.
Since the end of 2019, the COVID-19 epidemic has induced far-reaching effects on Hong Kong’s public health system, society and economy. The media’s coverage of the development of this pandemic has been an important testimony of history.
Hong Kong News-Expo has produced this exhibition to enhance public understanding of the pandemic’s impact on the community.
