The success of the “Bay Area Economy” depends on the ability of entrepreneurs and business leaders being “context relevant” and “practical”, as well as leveraging the “respective advantages”. The GBA Business School is established based on these pillars, holding forums and arranging daily training activities. The School aims to help develop the GBA economy through cultivating talents, and thus
become an important cornerstone under the strategic vision of the country's Belt and Road initiative.
Ir Dr Conrad Wong
Vice Chairman, Yau Lee Holdings Limited
As early as 1997, our company had already established a factory in Shenzhen in a bid to diversify our business. At the same time, we also expanded strategically into Macau, Singapore, and the United Arab Emirates. I deeply understand the importance of our distinctive advantage of having our motherland to back us up in our venture into the world. We will never be successful without good talents on board. For this reason, we have no hesitation to sponsor our people to take part in the GBA LEAP program. In addition to deepening their professional knowledge, we expect them to
have their horizons broadened and realms of capability elevated, with a full grasp of what the Greater Bay Area can offer.
