With strong intention to establish the Greater Bay Area comprising nine cities and two special administrative regions in the Guangdong area of South China, the Chinese government announces and promotes the Greater Bay Area Development Blueprint in 2019. The call for regional development and collaboration is strongly advocated by the local governments in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau, as well as the central government in Beijing. However, the responses from the citizens, especially in Hong Kong, seem not very enthusiastic. This paper sets out the wider socio-political and socio-economic context outlined above to critically examine how the young people aged between 18 and 35 in Hong Kong perceive and evaluate the development opportunities in the Greater Bay Area. This paper presents the major findings of surveys seeking the young people and also the university students in Hong Kong to comment on the development opportunities in the Bay Area, with particular reference to their major concerns and perceived hurdles when venturing in development projects in South China.
