Collaborations in the Greater Bay Area

 

The development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (Greater Bay Area) has brought the VTC many new opportunities for collaboration. Our flourishing partnership connects us with different associates from cities in the area, our students go on exchanges under various funding schemes, and familiarisation visits for staff members from various operational units have also been organised, enabling them to expand their networks.

The VTC and the Shenzhen Polytechnic University (SZPU) has jointly set up the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Student Exchange Alliance Secretariat in 2020 to promote exchanges and cooperation between institutions and enhance cultural interaction among young people in the GBA.  Currently, the Alliance comprises seven leading institutes in the GBA.

Since the establishment of the Alliance, a range of cultural and learning activities such as "Greater Bay Area International Youth Skills Competition" had been organised to enhance students’ perspectives and showcase their endless possibilities.  Looking forward, the Alliance will continue to provide diverse opportunities in youth exchange and empower our young talents with innovation and entrepreneurial development opportunities in the GBA.
