The policies push Hong Kong-Shenzhen collaboration to a new level. The Qianhai e-Services Hong Kong-Macau Station in Hong Kong has also officially launched to facilitate Hong Kong companies or individuals to get Shenzhen Qianhai business licenses in Hong Kong. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of Hong Kong SAR, Qianhai has recently introduced nine Hong Kong-related facilitation measures. Furthermore, the pilot policy for supporting science and technology innovation has been recently announced, and the Hong Kong Enterprise Compliance Development Service Centre was just opened to assist Hong Kong enterprises to develop in Qianhai." Prof. Hung supplemented that application deadline for the Qianhai-Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao-Taiwan Youth Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition has been extended to 26 August 2022. Young people who wish to start their business in Qianhai should grasp the final chance to join the competition and share the cash prize of RMB 7 million together.

There is a vast market potential and policy dividends in the Greater Bay Area. We can have a wide range of industries and good atmosphere for entrepreneurs and research and development. The complete supply chain and industrial chain, and low business set up costs makes GBA attractive.
