Abstract

Setting out against the development blueprint of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area in Southern China, this introductory chapter provides the broader context for this book, with a special focus on the ways in which institutions of higher education in the GBA and other global “bay areas” have worked to promote research, innovation, and entrepreneurship over time. The chapter offers an overview of the book and highlights the major arguments presented by its respective chapters. The last part of the chapter critically reflects upon the major challenges for future development GBA in China, especially the challenge of persuading young people from Hong Kong and other parts of Mainland China to pursue employment and long-term residence in the GBA.
