Hong Kong, strategically positioned at the heart of the vibrant Greater Bay Area (GBA), beckons with its exceptional pool of talent driving groundbreaking advancements in the field of innovation and technology (I&T). As part of the Project’s commitment to enhancing integration and harnessing the region's immense potential, a delegation trip to Foshan will be held to explore another I&T core city within the GBA.
Since 2021, Foshan has been officially recognized as a "National Innovation City". The city's manufacturing industry, aptly named "Foshan Manufacturing", has garnered international acclaim. Not only does it hold the prestigious title of the world's leading producer of ceramics, but it also boasts top rankings in the production of nine other products, including refrigerators and air conditioners.
In recent years, Foshan has earned its reputation as a thriving innovation ecosystem, serving as a catalyst for incubating and nurturing inventors and researchers. The city has achieved remarkable breakthroughs in cutting-edge domains such as artificial intelligence, intelligent equipment, new energy vehicles and hydrogen energy. Embracing the forward-thinking mantra of "Hong Kong research, Foshan manufacturing," the municipal government has highlighted the huge potential for collaboration in these areas. It is with this vision in mind that the Project’s delegation trip seeks to foster stronger cooperation and exchange between Hong Kong and Foshan, propelling us collectively towards new frontiers of innovation.
This delegation trip presents an unparalleled and enticing opportunity to explore the multitude of collaboration prospects that Foshan has to offer. By immersing ourselves in its vibrant innovative environment, Hong Kong enterprises can tap into a wealth of extensive resources, cutting-edge facilities, and supportive infrastructure designed to foster innovation and drive progress.
