The Greater Bay project is a landmark initiative by the Chinese government and is a stride forward for China’s urbanization strategy after 40 years of economic reforms and expansion. It comprises two Special Administrative Regions- Hongkong and Macau and nine other cities in the Guangdong province -Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Zhongshan, Dongguan, Zhaoqing, Jiangmen and Huizhou. They are China’s ambition to create a world class city cluster to compete on the world stage - one that is on par to other city clusters such as Greater New York, San Francisco Bay Area and Greater Tokyo Area.
