Prof. K. K. LING, Associate Director of the Research Institute for Land and Space (RILS) and Director of Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation, shared his views on the development of the Northern Metropolis in a panel discussion of the Master Insight Forum held on 27 October 2023.

Prof. Ling believed that the Northern Metropolis has several implications for Hong Kong: (1) it reshapes the development pattern of “emphasising the south over the north”; (2) it establishes a “twin city” relationship between Shenzhen and Hong Kong; (3) it is a new driver of Hong Kong’s future development; (4) the speedy development of the Northern Metropolis is an irreversible trend; and (5) the development reflects the advantages of “one country, two systems” policy.

Prof. Ling said that San Tin Technopole will be able to attract innovation and technology (I&T) talents and industries, and suggested developing Shenzhen Bay into a “golden inner bay”.
