Michael Enright – The Greater Bay Area, Regional Integration, and the Future of China
October 16, 2019 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm
Speaker: Michael Enright, University of Hong Kong
China’s Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is a landmark in China’s regional development strategy as well as an attempt to foster integration of the Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions into the rest of the PRC. However, the GBA Plan is just one of several regional integration initiatives that promise to change the economic and potentially the political landscape of China. Professor Michael Enright will assess the overall regional integration strategy and then focus in on the GBA to discuss the potential for the region, the GBA Plan, and the possibility for greater integration within the GBA in the context of China’s plans, US-PRC tensions, and internal challenges in the region.
