China to transform Hengquin into an international tourism Island

 Thursday, April 4, 2019 


China targets to turn the Hengqin District located in southern Guangdong Province into an international tourism island. By this attempt, it’s all set to further integrate the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.


The State Council has accepted, in principle, the proposal initiated for such a transformation, as per a statement released on Monday on its website.


Hengqin, located on an island, is close to Macao. The 106.46-square-kms region is anticipated to turn into a global tourism destination with all contemporary industrial system, green ecosystem and smart services.


The development of Hengqin will endorse moderate economic diversification of Macao and turn into a demonstration zone for the deep incorporation of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, the statement said.


Also, a free trade pilot zone will be endorsed in the region, according to the statement.


In February 2019, Chinese authorities disclosed the outline development plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, focusing to develop the city cluster into a quality living circle for living, working, health care and traveling.
