Commentaries regarded the Development Strategy as “ground-breaking” with its “Twin Cities, Three Circles” Hong Kong/Shenzhen cross-boundary spatial framework and “visionary” with its objective of making a complete innovation and technology industry eco-system which will become the second economic engine for Hong Kong.

The speaker will focus on the proposed actions of the Development Strategy that would forge a cross-boundary spatial framework to foster Hong Kong and Shenzhen integration, and to create spatial opportunities for the making of a complete innovation and technology industry eco-system for Hong Kong by developing Hung Shui Kiu / Lau Fau Shan area as a modern service industry centre, making the San Tin Technopole as Hong Kong’s Silicon Valley, and creating possibilities for advanced manufacturing development at Heung Yuen Wai area.
