Risks and Rewards Within Manufacturing for Swedish Companies in the Greater Bay Area/Webinar

Welcome to join us for this webinar to explore the prospects for Swedish companies in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) in southern China.

As the business landscape continues to evolve, Swedish companies are setting their sights on the promising opportunities within the Greater Bay Area (GBA). This dynamic region, located in southern China, is a hotspot for innovation, manufacturing, and international collaboration. We explore why Swedish companies are increasingly drawn to the GBA and how they can navigate the challenges and harness the rewards of doing business in this thriving economic hub.

The GBA at a Glance

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) comprises the two Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao, and the nine municipalities of Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Huizhou, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing in Guangdong Province. The total area is around 56 000 km2. At the end of 2019, the total population is over 71 million, the GDP is USD 1,679.5 billion and GDP per capita is USD 23,371. To put these numbers into perspective, the total population of the GBA is bigger than the United Kingdom, Italy or South Africa. Most importantly, according to the figure of the World Bank, the GBA’s GDP of almost USD 1.7 trillion would rank 11th in the world, ahead of Russia, South Korea, Spain or Australia.
