Encouraged by the Singapore-Guangdong Collaboration Council, the partnership between Nanfang, one of the biggest media groups based in Guangdong, and SPH Chinese Media Group, the biggest Chinese media group in Singapore, started in 2018.
Over the past two years, the two media groups have been devoted to communication between Guangdong and Singapore and organized a variety of joint projects that invited government officials, journalists and individuals to share stories relating to the two places.
Earlier in September, Nanfang Media Group invited journalists of Southeast Asian media including Lianhe Zaobao and the Straits Times, the two subsidiaries of SPH, to attend a media tour of major GBA cities. The project enabled journalists to experience authentic Lingnan culture and gain knowledge about how enterprises in the Bay Area are working more closely thanks to a variety of advantageous policies.
