Prof. Richard Weixing Hu, Dean of FSS, had an interview by Shenzhen Satellite TV Direct News to talk about the Overall Plan for the Construction of the Hengqin Guangdong-Macao Deep Cooperation Zone published on 5 September. With the Master Plan for the Guangdong-Macao In-depth Cooperation Zone in place, it is more clearly stated what should be done to assist in the diversification of Macao’s industry.
“The biggest highlight is the construction plan announced for a Guangdong-Macao in-depth cooperation zone, on about 106 square kilometres in Hengin. It is an area that two places negotiated, built, shared and managed together.” Prof. Hu adds.
In creating a cooperation zone with Chinese characteristics that can give full play to the advantages of the “two systems”. The Overall Plan will bring us a great enlightenment and also serve as a model for the development of other places in the future. From the relationship between China and Lusophone countries, Hengqin can serve as a platform to connect four main cities together, including Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Macau.
