Hong Kong 2030+ sets out the territorial spatial development strategy for the city beyond 2030, with recommendations on sources of supply underpinned by a spatial planning framework. It also demonstrates the Government’s staunch commitment to responding to the needs and aspirations of the society and fostering inclusive growth, while capitalising on the opportunities brought by the National 14th Five-year Plan and the Outline Development Plan for the Greater Bay Area. Hong Kong 2030+ has formulated a conceptual spatial framework for the future development of Hong Kong, showing a close-knit network of two metropolises (i.e. the Harbour Metropolis and the Northern Metropolis) and two development axes (i.e. Western Economic Corridor and Eastern Knowledge and Technology Corridor). Such a conceptual spatial framework will help achieve agglomeration of economic activities for better synergy, offer opportunities for retrofitting the dense urban core and bring jobs closer to homes.
