"We will promote closer cooperation between the mainland and Hong Kong and Macao. We will draw up a plan for the development of a city cluster in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area," Premier Li Keqiang said in a government work report on March 5. The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has drawn much attention from NPC deputies of CPPCC members attending the annual two sessions in Beijing.

The deputies have also hotly debated on how to develop new advantages of innovation in science and technology in line with China's supply-side reform and innovation-driven development strategy.

NPC deputy Huang Ningsheng, who is also head of Guangdong Provincial Department of Science and Technology, said on March 8 that innovation in science and technology should be given the leading role in the construction of the Greater Bay Area. Enterprises should be encouraged and guided to invest more in research and development in order to make the Greater Bay Area a regional innovation center.
