“Logistics and Trade Facilitation in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Bay Area:
Stakeholders Concerns, Comments from Central Government, and Policy Recommendations” Report

A report titled “Logistics and Trade Facilitation in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Bay Area: Stakeholders Concerns, Comments from Central Government, and Policy Recommendations” was prepared by a research team formed by members from the Policy Research Institute of Global Supply Chain, HSMC and the Asian Institute of Supply Chains & Logistics of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), based on a study which examines logistics and trade facilitation issues in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (hereafter referred to as Big Bay Area). A media briefing was held on 30 Nov 2017, which attracted much media interest.

 

The study organises related services into three categories: aviation, marine and ground; and within four cities: Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Macau. Stakeholders of respective categories and regions were interviewed for their views on the integration issues and development prospects. During a recent visit to the Central Government by a group of Hong Kong transport sector delegates, a set of questions regarding stakeholders’ concerns was submitted to four relevant Bureaux.

 

In this report, these concerns were discussed in detail first, followed by responses given by the respective Bureaux. Lastly, recommendations were provided with the intention to provoke thoughts and discussion, as well as further research, to ensure that decision makers would plan and develop logistics and trade facilitation in the Big Bay Area in a holistic manner.

 

This report is authored by Prof Lawrence Leung, Dean of HSMC’s School of Decision Sciences; Dr Danny Ho, Assistant Professor; and Dr Collin Wong, Head of Department of Supply Chain and Information Management (SCM); Prof Cheung Waiman, Director of CUHK’s Asian Institute of Supply Chains & Logistics; Dr Stephen Ng, Director of HSMC’s Policy Research Institute of Global Supply Chain; and Assistant Professors: Dr Daniel Mo, Dr Eugene Wong, Dr Wang Yue and Senior Research Assistant Mr Edmund Wu of the Department of SCM.
