Greater Bay Area Committee

Area of Focus: Greater Bay Area

Engagement and Mission:

The GBA Committee seeks to lead the development of the Greater Bay Area initiative which is vital to the ongoing development Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao (hereafter referred to as the “GBA”). The Committee is focused upon co-operation, education and advocacy for the benefit of the Committee Members and AustCham’s Greater China Chambers. The Committee aims to work with key stakeholders across the “whole of chamber” and act as a focal point across various key sectors.

Ongoing Objectives:

  • Co-operation: Broad and boundaryless cooperation between Hong Kong, Macao and Southern China supplemented by broader partnerships with AustCham Shanghai and Beijing and other Chambers, on GBA issues.
  • Education: To gather intelligence, build understanding of relevant issues and generate insights. 
  • Advocacy: To lead on awareness raising and policy recommendations on major issues affecting Austcham Members and stakeholders across GBA.

Looking to the Future:

The GBA Committee’s priorities will evolve overtime. For 2021 we will focus on the following initiatives:

  1. Authoring a holistic and detailed insight report as a follow-up to the joint KPMG and AustCham 2018 report on Greater Bay Area.
  2. Development of a GBA page on the Austcham HK’s website which includes pertinent information such as city profiles and relevant links.
  3. Engagement with investment bodies aligned with GBA municipal governments and other relevant chambers.
  4. Resumption of physical study tours as and when the external environment allows and to otherwise look at virtual constructs.




Time and Date of Meeting: Second Wednesday of every month, 5:00pm-6:00pm
