A forum on the development of Hengqin Island, co-organized by the management committee for the Hengqin New Area, the University of Macau’s Centre for Macau Studies, and Hong Kong Baptist University’s Advanced Institute for Contemporary China Studies, will open in mid-April. The theme of the forum is “the development of Hengqin Island and system-wise innovation”. Given that the framework pact on Macao-Guangdong cooperation was officially signed in early March, the forum will hopefully serve as a platform for governments in Macao, Hong Kong and Guangdong, enterprises, experts and scholars to carry out dialogues regarding the establishment of a regional cooperation demonstration zone as well as the development of Hengqin Island.
