China's Greater Bay Area: Bridging the Gap between Canada and Asia
Being one of the world’s most dynamic and important manufacturing bases and China’s most open and market-driven region, the Guangdong-HK-Macau Bay Area holds the key to China’s development and its integration with the world. The Bay Area also holds great promises for Canadian firms, especially in midst of trade and other adversities.
