    Possible with tencent Baidu and Alibaba, not to mention all the device manufacturers around.
    HK contribution would be minimal in terms of IP.

    Hold on, haven't they tried claiming to do tech hub already.

    Seriously Carrie is learning a lot from Trump. Basically say whatever shit she wants to.

    Also, just rehashing the same crap from 2015, but adding in the Greater Bay Area spin now. Has Greater Bay Area replaced Belt and Road for bullshit let's pander to Beijing claptrap for 2018?

    here gogovan is essentially copy of UBER, the vans and phone numbers already existed, and they are touted by Govt. as the leading IT company haha

    I do wonder, to politicians believe this stuff, or do they deliberately say crap like this just to generate distracting noise?

    Well Carrie is saying whatever she thinks will sound good for Beijing. And in any case she is probably just being directed by the Liaison Office to talk up the Greater Bay Area.
