Observation|Beixiong’an, South Dawan, China’s “Gemini” strategy is of great significance

The big party that has gone through a century is leading China to build a world-class city cluster with global competitiveness.

These world-class urban agglomerations dominate the land of China, such as the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei urban agglomeration, the Yangtze River Delta urban agglomeration, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the Chengdu-Chongqing urban agglomeration, and the middle reaches of the Yangtze River.

Among these, the “Gemini” strategy of Beixiong’an and Nandawan is of great significance.

Looking north, Xiong’an New District has fallen from “paper” to “ground”. This modern new city carrying “millennial plans and national events” rises from the ground. At present, the Xiongan New District has entered the stage of large-scale construction.

Looking south, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has come to its side from its conception. A world-class bay area and world-class city cluster that benchmarks the Tokyo Bay Area of ​​Japan, the San Francisco Bay Area of ​​the United States, and the New York Bay Area. forming.

The history of the Greater Bay Area fully presents the history of China’s development from being densely covered with thorns to being overwhelmed with thorns since ancient times.

The smoke of Humen was ignited here, and the great eastern powers have since opened the door of modern history;

The clarion call of reform and opening up is sounded here, and the momentum of development is majestic. Let the world understand China from here;

Now that the fourth technological revolution is approaching, technological innovation is changing with each passing day, and here is the first to perceive it.

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is a national strategy personally planned, deployed and promoted by General Secretary Xi Jinping.

It encircles the nine cities of Guangdong that are “the pioneers of reform and opening up”, and the two “free and open economies” Hong Kong and Macau, making the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

From the point of special economic zone to the urban agglomeration of the Greater Bay Area, China’s reform and opening up has embarked on a new journey.

The rolling Pearl River is surging endlessly, and southern Guangdong has long been changing day by day. As the “first step” of reform and opening up, the Pearl River Delta has shown its new name card to the world-from “World Factory” to “World Bay Area.”

The competition in the world today is largely the competition in the Bay Area economy.

The special feature of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is that it was built under the conditions of one country, two systems, three customs areas, and three currencies. There is no precedent in the world. Ge Changwei, director of the Guangdong Provincial Development and Reform Commission, said in an interview with The Paper’s Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Reporting Group on April 20 that compared with the other three major bay areas in the world, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has several advantages and characteristics: 1. It is the development space and foundation, which has advantages in area, population, and market; the second is the industrial system, the manufacturing system is more complete, and the modern service industry develops rapidly; the third is that from the perspective of transportation, the transportation network has advantages, roads and railways. , Aviation and other aspects are very intensive.

General Secretary Xi Jinping instructed: to boldly venture, try boldly, and open a new path.

This is the historical mission of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and it is also its integrated advantage-combining the system advantages of “one country, two systems” with the practical experience of reform and opening up, and transforming it into a new layout for regional development and a new opening to the outside world. Gateway, a new guarantee for the prosperity of Hong Kong and Macao.

On March 11, the Fourth Session of the 13th National People’s Congress voted and passed the resolution on the “14th Five-Year Plan” and the 2035 long-term goal outline. The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area will make efforts to build a major technological innovation platform, build a modern infrastructure system, improve the spatial layout of urbanization, develop an important source of power for high-quality development, actively and steadily promote the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and maintain Hong Kong and Macau in the long-term Prosperity and stability.

For Hong Kong and Macau, the construction of the Greater Bay Area can be described as a major development opportunity at the right time.

Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao are deeply integrated, with clear division of labor, each with its own characteristics. Hong Kong, an international financial, shipping, trade center, and an international aviation hub; Macau, a world tourism and leisure center, a business cooperation service platform between China and Portuguese-speaking countries; the nine cities in the Pearl River Delta, the most outward-oriented economic region in the Mainland and an important window for opening up.

A scholar who has studied the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area for a long time said that from the experience of the global bay area, the economy of the bay area has to go through the four stages of port economy, industrial economy, service economy and innovation economy. Continuous transformation and upgrading. In the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area of ​​China, four stages occurred in the same period.

Another scholar believes that as a major city in the Bay Area, Hong Kong and Macao, the firm support of the state and a vast market are the confidence and motivation for its future development; the Bay Area promotes technological innovation through institutional innovation, both for The country continues to improve its opening up to the outside world and accelerate the pace of construction of the “Belt and Road”. It also allows Hong Kong to find a “secret weapon” to maintain long-term prosperity and stability and continuously enhance the city’s core competitiveness.

On the second anniversary of the release of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area planning outline, all parties showed their transcripts: The global offshore RMB business hub has been consolidated, and the RMB influence has increased; financial interconnection will be promoted in an orderly manner, and Hong Kong will consolidate an international financial center Position; the advantages of cities in the Greater Bay Area complement each other and jointly build an international science and technology innovation center; universities from Hong Kong and Macao go to the Bay Area to run schools, and the three places have set off a new upsurge in education cooperation; the exchanges of people, logistics and capital flows are strengthened to connect and build a high-quality living circle…

More real and subtle changes are around: young people work and live across cities, and the “one-hour life circle” has a wider radiation range; Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao visit relatives and leave; Hong Kong and Macao young people go north to find work. Enjoy generous welfare subsidies; more and more people choose to take root in the Bay Area, buy a house, get married, have children… Whether they are from Hong Kong, Macao, Cantonese or other places, “Come, you are the Bay Area people”!

Everyone has a deep feeling: this home in the Greater Bay Area has become more harmonious, closer, and more convenient.

South China Sea, the mouth of the Pearl River, this newly-developed world-class bay area facing the whole world, will follow the established track and advance in the same direction, exerting the effect of “9+2>11”.

The world is watching China, and the world is watching the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
