When mentioning Hong Kong companies investing in Guangdong, Fok Ying Tung Group is one inevitable representative. Recently, Eric Fok Kai-shan, Vice President of the Fok Ying Tung Group, received an interview talking about Fok Ying Tung Group’s involvement and efforts in Guangdong-Hong Kong development.
“The construction of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area will be beneficial for three places, and more global high-end talents will be attracted here. Our group will continue to support Nansha’s endeavor on establishing itself a livable place,” Eric said.
Eric insisted that Guangdong is a pioneer for the reform and opening-up in China and it owns a very good business environment. The cooperation between Hong Kong and Guangdong has been continuously upgraded by Hong Kong/Guangdong Cooperation Joint Conference, CEPA, the co-construction of Guangdong Pilot Free Trade Zone and the coming plan for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
As a Hong Kong businessman with investment in Guangdong, Eric needs to travel between Hong Kong and Guangzhou every week. Eric cheered for convenient transportation between Hong Kong and Guangdong now. He took Nansha as an example. Now people can go to Hong Kong from Nansha Ferry Terminal directly by ferry and it will take only 28 minutes through Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong High-Speed Railway which will be open next year.
Eric Fok Kai-shan is also a member of Guangdong province's political advisory body.
“The soon-to-be-developed Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, Shenzhen-Zhongshan Bridge and Humen 2nd Bridge will speed up the integration of Hong Kong and Guangdong and accelerate the cooperation and communication between the two places.”
