"There's great opportunity in the movie industry in the Greater Bay Area," said Stephen Chow, a famous Hong Kong actor, also a Guangdong CPPCC member. To solve the problem of talent scarcity, a series of projects aiming at training creative talent and making films will be promoted. Chow hopes to see stunning results in the international market by film makers from the GBA.
Concerning talent flow and the potential development of the GBA, Zhang Yunfei, chairman of Zhuhai Yunzhou Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd said that although there are many high-level science and technology universities, graduates still find it hard to get a job relevant to their major, due to the service-based industry structure.
He suggested encouraging more young people from Guangdong to take up further studies in Hong Kong and Macao. Likewise, Hong Kong and Macao graduates can work in Guangdong, vitalizing the GBA’s development.
"We should carry out a more comprehensive approach to cooperation in addition to economy and trade, from which a sustainable and repeatable model can be formed," said Yang Daokuang, vice president of Guangdong’s Association For the Promotion of Cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong & Macao. He suggested that the free port policy should be further applied in Hengqin, Zhuhai so as to solve the problem of system difference between the Chinese mainland and Macao.
Wu Xueming, chairman and executive chairman of the Youth Association of the Greater Bay Area, advised that industries, universities and researches of Guangdong and Hong Kong to set up a joint-venture professional skills curriculum for the youth in the region.

According to Zhang Shanming, manager of China Guangdong Nuclear(CGNPC), technology helps to raise the level of city management. It is crucial to build scientific management systems and eliminate hidden dangers using technology.
Education is the key to strengthening scientific innovation. Hu Zhengyong, a CPPCC member and director of the curriculum and teacher development center at the Guangdong Experimental Middle School, holds that middle and primary schools should pay more attention to artificial intelligence(AI) education. AI education should train not only first-class creators, but also good AI users who follow ethics and moral regulations.
The proposal of Jiang Shengyi, Dean of the School of Information Science and Technology/ School of Cyber security, Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, is also related to artificial intelligence. He suggested increasing investment in AI appliances to improve information processing and language service ability, which will in turn improve Guangdong's foreign trade services.
