Hong Kong Cable Television Limited has officially launched its Greater Bay Area News Centre. The GBA News Centre, located in Guangzhou with correspondent from Hong Kong, is dedicated to bringing viewers with the latest news and finance information of the Bay Area as well as talks of the town in the regions. With the “Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area” to be unveiled soon, the government officials in the three regions will come together to explore opportunities arising from the plan and formulate directions for future development of the “9+2” cities. To capitalise on this regional Government move, Cable TV has taken the lead in launching the GBA News Centre to provide first-hand information for viewers.
The company says it is dedicated to becoming one of the leading media organisations in the Bay Area.
Mr Ronald Chiu, Executive Director of i-CABLE News Limited, said, “As an international financial centre in Asia, Hong Kong plays an important role for the development of Great Bay Area. The demand for finance news and information of the regions is growing rapidly. In view of this, the GBA News Centre was established to produce quality and professional news and finance programmes to help foster information exchange among “9+2″ cities. Furthermore, we will be able to keep up with the latest news in the regions with our dedicated GBA news team and correspondents in Guangzhou to collect the first-hand information.”
To keep viewers updated on the new developments of the regions, our GBA News Centre will introduce GBA Express, a prime time news programme covering the hottest news of the day. The GBA news team will connect simultaneously with Cable TV’s news centre in Hong Kong for information exchange. The team will also work around the member cities to conduct live reporting and interviews with prominent guests to produce news reports with professional analysis.
In addition, the team will produce other programmes including Bay Area Elites, a series of exclusive interviews with key figures of various industries in the regions. Entrepreneurs such as Mr Chen Yidan, Co-founder of Tencent, Mr Zhou Jian, Founder of AI robotic company UBTech, Mr Wu Jiawei, first Vice-chancellor of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and more will talk about new emerging industries and discover potential opportunities for start-ups. Another programme Here you are, Bay Area, will present viewers with the latest developments of the “9+2” cities. The programme will look into the major developments of the member cities in certain aspects and feature interviews with outstanding company owners or industry elites.
