Mobility. The integration of the Greater Bay Area started predominantly with various projects facilitating fluid and faster mobility between the cities. The Hong Kong – Macau – Zhuhai bridge, the high-speed railway network, additional bridges, integrated metro lines between cities like Guangzhou and Foshan, are just a few examples.

Mobility is also universal. The challenges are similar across the globe, investments are enormous and in-efficiencies significant. Airbus and Boeing are flying in and out of China, whilst high-speed trains manufactured in China are proliferating all over the world. At this Summit, we will explore opportunities for innovation, investment and cross-border business while highlight the positive impact technology can bring to urban life.

The Summit also represents a grand finale of the GreaterBayX scalerator program. This action-oriented gathering will feature the eight world-class technology companies selected after a long and rigorous process from Australia, China, India and Europe. Their intention is to bring their market-proven mobility-related solutions to the region's innovation ecosystem, positively impacting the megatrend of urbanization.

The eight scale-ups will be joined on stage by a diverse and exciting group of thought-leaders and influencers, including government officials, corporate executives and investors to explore business, investment and growth opportunities across the Greater Bay Area.
