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.
