In 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping launched the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) initiative, corralling the two Special Administrative Regions (SARs) of Hong Kong and Macao with Guangdong, one of the richest of China’s 34 provinces.
The GBA is recognized by the World Bank as the largest mega-city in the world with 67 million residents. The region’s progress in healthcare innovation has been startling, as it seems to possess the same core components as the “original,” San Francisco Bay Area: high-tech IT sectors, electronics hardware capabilities, riotous VC activity, vibrant academic and basic science research, favorable government policy, and a huge market.
This report features exclusive insights from executives, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and leading researchers embedded in the GBA. It covers topics such as the Hong Kong biotech ecosystem, Shenzhen’s globally-recognized tech innovators, emerging trends in cell and gene therapy, the latest in in-vitro diagnostics, and much more.
