Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan's Big Bay Area is one of the world's four big bay areas, aiming to build an international first-class bay area and a world-class urban agglomeration. As the Great Bay Area involves one country, two systems, three tariff zones and three currency zones, how to carry out system innovation and promote factor flow is a key proposition for the construction of the Great Bay Area in Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.
The plenary meeting of Zhuhai's Leading Group for Promoting the Construction of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao's Grand Bay Area held on September 18 pointed out that the promotion of the construction of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao's Grand Bay Area should be regarded as Zhuhai's glorious mission of serving the practice of "one country, two systems" and Zhuhai's contribution to maintaining the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong and Macao.
Hengqin is one of the three major free trade areas in Guangdong Province, and is also the leading place for Zhuhai's reform and opening up. After the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is opened to traffic, Hengqin will become the only national-level new district and free trade test area in Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and the Gulf region and even the whole country that are simultaneously connected with the Hong Kong-Macao land bridge.
Holding thousands of advantages in one body, how does Hengqin blend into the Bay Area era?
Reporters found in many interviews that the answer is not clear, Hengqin had already planned. As a demonstration area for deep cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, Hengqin has, in recent years, given full play to its regional advantages, focused on system innovation, promoted the circulation of "people flow, logistics, capital flow and information flow" between Hengqin and Hong Kong and Macao, accelerated regional integration and strengthened opening up, which has become an important carrier for the free flow, high concentration and optimal spatial allocation of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao factor resources.
Promoting information flow:
Start to build a dedicated channel for Internet data
Information circulation cannot be realized without the support of basic communication facilities.
At present, Hengqin has achieved 100% data transmission through optical fibers, completing 260 kilometers of communication optical cables and 120 kilometers of communication pipelines. Hengqin's first cloud computing big data center based on big data concept has been built and used, with PB-level data storage capability and kilo-core computing capability. Hengqin electronic purse seine, which has been put into use, has realized the goal of constructing a three-dimensional purse seine through intelligent equipment and intelligent analysis in the absence of a physical purse seine. It is the first information monitoring platform with wall-type function in China.
In September 2017, the China Free Trade Zone Information Port was inaugurated in Hengqin. Its aim is to attract information and data enterprises, Internet enterprises and technical institutions to settle in Hengqin through the construction of the headquarters building of the China Free Trade Zone Information Port, and to build a hub for information collection, processing, dissemination, trading and publishing in the global Free Trade Zone.
Let "information flow" flow across the border, Hengqin's innovative measures continue.
In January this year, Hengqin launched the upgrading and renovation of the comprehensive management system for Macao's motor vehicles entering and leaving Hengqin. The new system has broken the business barriers and data barriers of the government systems of the two places, realized the unification of standards within the domain and the exchange and sharing outside the domain, or will become the first business system in the country to realize cross-border approval data sharing and mutual recognition.
On September 21, Hengqin New District's application plan for a dedicated Internet data channel was approved by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and officially approved. The capacity of the channel is configured to 20Gps at the initial stage of construction. After completion, enterprises in Hengqin will directly pass through the dedicated international communication channel of Guangzhou International Import and Export Bureau instead of through the public network, which will significantly enhance Hengqin's international communication service capacity and enhance the level of regional informatization and opening to the outside world.
The dedicated channel for Internet data is a kind of international communication infrastructure that takes specific areas as access units and enterprises as service objects. Its construction is of great significance in opening up the "information flow" between Hengqin and Hong Kong and Macao.
"Next, we will strictly follow the" Hengqin New Area Transmission Network Construction Project Plan "to construct a communication network bearing platform with" fast access, reasonable capacity, safety and reliability, flexible scheduling and advanced technology "to comprehensively enhance the international export capability of Hengqin New Area's Internet." Deng Lianbing, general manager of Zhuhai Da Heng Qin Technology Development Co., Ltd., said.
