Guangdong to Build Greater Bay Area into Science & Tech Center

Jan 29, 2019     Email"> PrintText Size

Southern China's Guangdong Province said Monday it would step up efforts in 2019 to build the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area into a global tech innovation center.

Guangdong governor Ma Xingrui made the announcement while delivering the government work report to the province's legislature, which opened its annual session on Monday.

He said Guangdong would work with Hong Kong and Macao to build a group of laboratories on advanced and industrial technologies as it created a tech innovation corridor linking Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Macao.

"The province will promote the sharing of scientific facilities and data with Hong Kong and Macao and boost cooperation between universities, research institutions and tech firms within the Greater Bay Area," he said.

Guangdong will also speed up the construction of a high intensity heavy-ion accelerator and cooperate with the Chinese Academy of Sciences to build a national terahertz science center and an intelligent supercomputing platform.

The Greater Bay Area covers the special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macao, and nine cities in Guangdong. (Xinhua)
