US companies are eager to tap into these opportunities from the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA), especially in the health-care industry, said Myron Brilliant, Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Brilliant made his remarks during an exclusive interview with Newsgd.com before setting out for the coming 2019 ICCFED as one of the twelve foreign consultants. 2019 ICCFED is scheduled to kick off Today (November 21st).
Brilliant specified that his Chamber and US companies have recognized that there is vast untapped potential in the Greater Bay Area. From building mega infrastructure, to providing innovative financing solutions, or building IoT-connected smart cities, there are opportunities across a large range of areas for cooperation. U.S. companies are eager to tap into these opportunities and contribute to the Greater Bay Area’s success with their innovative business models, global management expertise and best practice, and pioneering products and services.
Brilliant personally believes that health-care will be one of the most promising fields for cooperation. This February an agreement was signed by the Health Commission of Guangdong province, the Food and Health Bureau of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and the Health Bureau of Macao Special Administrative Region, aiming to build the Greater Bay Area into a first-class provider of health-care. American businesses look forward to contributing to the success of this critical initiative.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the ICCFED. As a veteran of the event, Brilliant insisted that Guangdong has been a leader in forging strong relationships at the sub-national level, setting positive examples for economic cooperation between the United States and China, and the ICCFED helps to facilitate and reinforce these important efforts, which are in the mutual interest of the two nations.
“The American business community is proud to have contributed to Guangdong’s journey of economic transformation over the last few decades. The Chamber and our members remain committed to being part of the next chapter of the success of Guangdong province and the Greater Bay Area.”
