Abstract

The Northern Metropolis Development Strategy is the first strategic action agenda devised by the HKSAR Government with a spatial concept and strategic mindset going beyond the administrative boundary between Hong Kong and Shenzhen. It contemplates new action directions and approaches for the long-term development prospects of Hong Kong. Thus, it is a ground-breaking and visionary plan bearing particular significance.  It would be worth to appreciate the overarching concepts behind the Development Strategy and how the concepts can trigger a paradigm shift from the conventional mindset of the current government operation.
