Huang Huahua, Governor of Guang-dong Province, said that Guangdong w-ould continue to play an active role in fostering the regional cooperation and will support the cooperation projects and implement the cooperation mea-sures.

 

The PPRD Regional Cooperation and Development Program (2006-2020), which identifies plans and work priorities regarding PPRD regional cooperation in the near future, was launched during the forum. The program includes stepping up infrastructure development, promoting an open market, advancing the implementation of the Mainland-Hong Kong and Mainland-Macao Closer Economic Partnership Arrangements (CEPA) and increasing direct flights within the PPRD region.

 

According to the forum, the PPRD regional cooperation will organize a se-cretariat for the PPRD Administrative Principal Joint Conference, and the of-fice will be located in Guangdong. The secretariat will facilitate communication between the eleven PPRD  members, as well as standardize the regional cooperation.

 

The forum also included three sub-forums on intellectual property pro-tection, capital market and logistics development.

 

During the Economic and Trade Co-operation Fair, a purchasing conference for enterprises was held and yielded contracts worth over 800 million RMB. Six conferences were arranged to pro-mote PPRD members’ cooperation in infrastructure construction, manufacturing, agriculture, the service industry, technology innovation and tourism. More than 4,000 project contracts in total were signed, worth 453.5 billion RMB (54.8 billion USD). The projects mainly focus on manufacture, trade and tour-ism, and manufacturing occupies 33.75 percent of the total investment.

 

The forum also revealed that the third PPRD Regional Cooperation and Development Forum and the third PPRD Economic and Trade Cooperation Fair will be held in Kunming, capital city of Yunnan Province next year.
