Chinese authorities unveiled the “Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area” on February 18, 2019. The plan pointed out that the Greater Bay Area should become an economic system and a mode of development mainly supported by innovation by 2035.

The leading role of Guangzhou national center city and comprehensive portal city will be given full play. And Shenzhen will be strived to be an innovative and creative capital with world influence. At the same time, the Plan will promote the construction of the Greater Bay Area science and technology innovation corridor. It will support 7 cities— Zhuhai, Foshan, Huizhou, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing to make full use of their advantages and promote reform and innovation.

Sun Yat-sen University is now constituted by five campuses in the three cities of Guangzhou, Zhuhai and Shenzhen, which are the core cities of the Greater Bay Area. We will strive to contribute to the development of the Great Bay Area into an education and talent hub. In addition, the plan gives us more development opportunities and school resources, providing new opportunities for discipline construction and talent training.
