Feb 20, was the first day that the Chinese mainland cities within the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area implemented the talent endorsement policy for traveling to and from Hong Kong or Macao.
Six scientific research talents from Guangzhou were issued the first batch of talent endorsements to travel to and from Hong Kong and Macao that same day.
Zhang Xiangdong, executive vice president of the Nansha Research Institute of Sun Yat-Sen University, said that the implementation of this policy is expected to meet the communication needs of entrepreneurial teams.
According to the policy, talents with this endorsement can stay in Hong Kong or Macao for 30 days each visit. Zhang expressed that this time will be sufficient for carrying out experiments, and that it is more conducive to platform construction.
Ji Jing, an associate researcher at the Guangzhou Institute of Advanced Technology said that, in the past, she could only apply for a travel endorsement when she arrived in Hong Kong or Macao, and that the seven-day timeframe was limiting. Ji noted that her long-awaited immersive learning exchange is now finally possible.
This endorsement allows talents to travel to and from Hong Kong or Macao multiple times during the validity period, which satisfied many scientific research talents.
Li Jie, senior engineer of the Greater Bay Area Institute of Precision Medicine (Guangzhou), goes to Hong Kong and Macao almost every month to carry out scientific research activities. After the implementation of this new regulation, he believes that exchanges between the two places will become more frequent.
Huang Yueling, a police officer of the Guangzhou municipal public security bureau, said that this policy benefits many talents. It will not only help the mainland to strengthen exchanges and cooperation between Hong Kong and Macao, but will also inject new momentum into high-quality development on all sides.
