Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area 00:59:00 2018-07-06
On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about urban development and city clusters in mainland China. President Xi Jinping has stressed the importance of the city cluster​ concept  as an engine to drive economic growth. China plans to boost regional development for a total of 19 clusters by 2020, including the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. What are the potential benefits for developing megacities? Will this coordinated urban development attract more talent, labour, public services, housing and transport development? How likely will this be to boost economic growth and productivity in the region? And what about the potential environmental threats such as air pollution? Leave us a message, or email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or call us on 23388266.
