Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area: China’s Greater Bay Area aims for world innovation center
The future of China’s economy is also being reshaped in the Greater Bay Area region of the country. The goal is to build the region as an innovation center of the world. But how to achieve that goal? Our reporter Ge Yunfei went to Dongguan, a major export manufacturing base in the Bay Area, to find out.
Humans using robotics to perform surgery with minimal invasive procedures that require a single incision or none at all. This cutting-edge technology is a reality, thanks in large part to a Hong Kong medical device start-up company called NISI.
DAVID WONG, FOUNDER & MANAGING DIRECTOR NISI GROUP, HONG KONG 「Our product will revolutionize the non-invasive surgeries as well as the medical device market.」
Though founded in Hong Kong, NISI chose to set up its manufacturing base in Dongguan, near the new headquarters of Huawei Smartphone. Local officials say start-ups and giants all come here for one reason.
OUYANG NANJIANG, DIRECTOR SONGSHAN LAKE HI-TECH ZONE 「In hardware development, our efficiency of updating products is 10 times faster than that of the Silicon Valley, and our cost is only one-tenth of that of the Silicon Valley. This is our biggest advantage in tech development.」
China is planning to create a hi-tech innovation center in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. One of the keys is linking Hong Kong’s world-class research institutions with the innovation powers and major manufacturing bases on the mainland.
DAVID WONG, FOUNDER & MANAGING DIRECTOR NISI GROUP, HONG KONG 「We saw many opportunities arising from the Greater Bay Area. Greater connectivity, support and infrastructure for innovation, these are great visions outlined in the plan which we believe will benefit small businesses and start-ups like NISI.」
According to a blue print released this week, Hong Kong will serve as a funding and incubation center for start-ups in the bay area in a move to compete with and model itself after California’s Silicon Valley.
