Major Initiatives

The Government's dedicated website on Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (Greater Bay Area) is a “one-stop” portal for disseminating information relating to the development of the Greater Bay Area to different sectors in the community, with a view to encouraging them to actively participate in the development of the Greater Bay Area.

To support companies in doing business in the Greater Bay Area, Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) operates the following -

Mainland and Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA)  is a free trade agreement signed between the Mainland of China and Hong Kong in 2003.

CEPA covers four broad areas: 
(1) Trade in Goods 
Products of Hong Kong that fulfil the CEPA rules of origin can enjoy zero tariff treatment upon importation into the Mainland. 
(2) Trade in Services
Hong Kong service suppliers can enjoy preferential access in most service sectors in the Mainland market.
(3) Investment
Hong Kong investments and investors enjoy investment protection and facilitation in the Mainland. 
(4) Economic and Technical Cooperation 
The two sides have agreed to enhance cooperation in various areas and promote the cooperation in the economic and trade areas of the “Belt and Road” Initiative and Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

The Customs and Excise Department has been tasked with the enforcement duties of the CEPA Certification System for Trade in Goods, including inspections of factories registered with the Trade and Industry Department for certification purposes under CEPA, origin verifications and costing checks on consignments related to CEPA at factories, and investigations into any suspected malpractices.

The "Outline of the 14th Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development of the People's Republic of China and the Long-Range Objectives Through the Year 2035" ("the National 14th Five-Year Plan") was approved by the fourth session of the 13th National People’s Congress on 11 March 2021, which maps out the development blueprint and action agenda for the country in the next five years (2021-2025) and, at the same time, crafts a vision for the long-range objectives through the year 2035.  It establishes a clear positioning for Hong Kong’s future development.  Apart from the continuous support for Hong Kong in enhancing its status as an international financial, transportation and trade centre, as well as a centre for international legal and dispute resolution services in the Asia-Pacific region, the National 14th Five-Year Plan has raised for the first time its support for Hong Kong in four emerging sectors, namely supporting Hong Kong to enhance its status as an international aviation hub and develop into an international innovation and technology hub, a regional intellectual property trading centre and a hub for arts and cultural exchanges between China and the rest of the world.  It also mentions the support for high-quality Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Development.
