In February 2019, the State Council issued the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, proposing to build the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area into a world-class city cluster, which is conducive to enriching the connotation of the practice of “One Country, Two Systems”, further strengthening exchanges and cooperation between the Mainland and Hong Kong and Macao, providing more opportunities for the economic and social development of Hong Kong and Macao and the development of Hong Kong and Macao compatriots in the Mainland, and maintaining the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong and Macao.
We are a group of people who love our country and Hong Kong, have similar experience and philosophy in logistics and supply chain management, all of whom have participated in the voluntary work of various associations in China or Hong Kong. When the country put forward the initiative to build the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, we were very excited, first of all, to praise the wisdom of the national leaders, and at the same time, we were convinced that this initiative would promote the comprehensive development of the cities in the Greater Bay Area.
As we all know, leading logistics and supply chain practices have always been closely related to the development of all industries in the country, which can help China’s trade with cost reduction and efficiency. As industry veterans, we understand that this consortium can leverage the capabilities of logistics supply chain professionals in the region and promote their cross-industry cooperation to produce huge synergies. Therefore, we take the lead to actively participate in these meaningful volunteer work through the establishment of the “Federation of Greater Bay International Logistics and Supply Chain Industry”. Based on our many years of experience in the association’s work, we understand that the convergence of a regional resource can create innovative, unique and scale synergies through the integration of ideas. Therefore, we will work with like-minded people in Guangdong Province and other regions in China to explore some potential projects that can produce synergies with Hong Kong-related industries and take the lead in promoting further work.
Ride on national policies and innovation and technology, we will use the Greater Bay Area as the base to further cooperate with the Belt and Road Network, ASEAN, BRICS countries, Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), etc. to promote cooperation in traditional commerce, cross-border e-commerce and service trade.
