Leung Chun-ying, Hong Kong's outgoing chief executive, has urged the city to grab the opportunities presented by the Greater Bay Area - part of the national strategy behind the Belt and Road Initiative - and leverage its unique advantages to speed up development over the next decade.

"I'm very optimistic about the future of Hong Kong, in terms of both economy and social development," he said. "China's reform and opening-up and the national strategy to develop the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area are two wings that can help Hong Kong fly high."

The bay area covers 56,500 square kilometers and comprises 11 cities - the Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions and the cities of Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Zhongshan, Dongguan, Huizhou, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing in Guangdong province.
