Loh Tuck Keat, the Consul General of the Republic of Singapore in Guangzhou, said that against the backdrop of higher-level opening up in the Chinese market, registered Singaporean entities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) saw steady growth during these years, which made more room for China-Singapore cooperation. “Close cooperation between Singapore and Guangdong will bring more mutual-benefits and synergy.”

Zheng Yong, Director General of CSGKC Office of Collaboration Affairs, introduced that the number of market entities in CSGKC has rocketed up to over 6,000, with registered capital of 50 billion RMB and 24 thousand entities in total.

“In terms of integrated circuit, a semi-conductor industrial park taking up 6.6 square kilometer has been planned to build into a hub of integrated circuits in the GBA and the 3rd core of that in China. As for new energy cars, the first global auto communication service platform of Baidu’s Apollo has been settled here, and the main building of Xpeng, one of China’s leading smart electric vehicle companies, has already roofed,” Zheng said in the hope of building CSGKC into the top choice for Singapore to enter Chinese market and the connection between domestic economic circle in the GBA and China-ASEAN economic circle.
