The 55-kilometre Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge (HZMB) has become a major transportation hub linking Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau since its opening in October 2018. The completion of the bridge has greatly facilitated the economic integration and development of neighbouring cities in terms of visitor arrivals, logistics and capital flows. Scholars have forecast that regional GDP may grow as much as several hundred trillion yuan, thanks to the benefits brought by the bridge.

Convenient cross-border travel via the HZMB not only makes it easier for people to move around the Greater Bay Area (GBA), including those employed in Macau, but also represents a positive development for youngsters when it comes to home ownership and job opportunities. Meanwhile, the governments of Hong Kong and Macau will gradually increase quotas for cross-border traffic. This will shorten transit time and make border formalities simpler, providing more flexibility for those who work frequently between Hong Kong and Macau.

The increasingly convenient transport link will stimulate business and created myriad commercial opportunities, attracting an increased number of companies in neighbouring cities to choose Macau as their business base. It will also boost personal retail and revenue-generating leisure activity. Those sated with Macau’s shopping choices will now be able to travel more easily to Hong Kong. A surge in the number of visitor arrivals to Macau has already begun, reflecting new lifestyle dynamics in the GBA.

Alongside increasing business opportunities, population growth and mobility, market demand for residential buildings is also gradually expanding.
