Northern Metropolis Development Strategy
In the 2021 Policy Address, the Chief Executive stated that the Northern Metropolis Development Strategy “is the first strategic action agenda devised by the HKSAR Government with a spatial concept and strategic mindset going beyond the administrative boundary of Hong Kong and Shenzhen”.  The proposed strategic actions open up enormous economic opportunities by forging a complete innovation and technology industry ecology in the Northern Metropolis and by creating a promising metropolitan for living in and work.
