Word from the Honorary Chairman
Mr. Wei Ming
The GBA 5G Industry Alliance Honorary Chairman
Chairman and General Manager of China Mobile Guangdong
At this key moment for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area and the ground zero of commercial 5G, I’d like to offer a hearty congratulations on the founding of the GBA 5G Industry Alliance!
5G is becoming our society’s main artery for information flow, product upgrade, and the new cornerstone of digital society construction. So far this year, in accordance with the company’s “5G+” project, China Mobile Guangdong has accelerated its 5G network construction and innovation in 5G application, helping to build a smart city cluster in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area. In terms of network construction, we put our full weight behind building the biggest and highest quality 5G network in Guangdong. This year will see its first commercial application in Guangzhou and Shenzhen. As for innovation in application, we have worked with partners in the industrial chain to create benchmark demonstrations, such as 5G ultra HD livestream, 5G smart grid, 5G smart medical, 5G smart factory, etc.
The establishment of the GBA 5G Industry Alliance will greatly promote sharing and technology innovation within the 5G industries of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau. With the help of this platform, I hope we will integrate advanced 5G industry and capabilities, unite with partners in various fields, build a dynamic industry ecology, and help create the “Digital Bay Area” of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau.

The GBA 5G Industry Alliance Honorary Chairman
Chairman of China Mobile Hong Kong
Congratulations on the founding of the Alliance. I am very honored to become a part of The Greater Bay Area 5G Industry Alliance.
"4G changes life, 5G changes society." China Mobile has been committed to leading and promoting 5G development through establishing the 5G joint innovation center and holding the China Mobile OneNET Start-ups Marathon Competition to cultivate those who are creative pioneers. We are preparing for the new era of 5G.
The establishment of the GBA 5G Industry Alliance in the first year of 5G is of special significance. The alliance effectively combines the strengths of industry stakeholders to provide a platform for resource sharing in the GBA, and build a cohesive 5G ecosystem to maximize resources for cost-effectiveness. China Mobile Hong Kong is actively following up on the Group's "5G+" initiative, which will expand the 5G integration of different ecosystems and new technologies to different levels of society, thereby creating a 5G+X vision to enhance the quality of life for all.
We are committed to promoting the development of the Internet of Things in the GBA by integrating advanced technologies and applications from a diverse spectrum of industry enterprises, and forging the GBA into an international science and technology innovation center.

Chairman of CITIC Telecom CPC
5G network technology will bring a disruptive change to every industry. As the application of explosive new technology, such as the Internet of things, big data, and artificial intelligence, becomes increasingly sophisticated, we can foresee the next few years will be an age of convergence.
To a telecommunications operator, this is a challenge, but there are also opportunities everywhere, especially where smart devices, AI technology and high-speed networks integrate. There will certainly be the further development of more industries and daily application—one could say this space is infinite. In order to promote the integration of the development of the GBA and seize opportunities for 5G industry development, CITIC Telecom International and CTM wish to join hands with various industries in the GBA. Together, we will enhance the depth and breadth of smart city development and enter into an era of infinite possibilities.
Words from the Founding Chairman
Mr. Sean Lee
The GBA 5G Industry Alliance Founding Chairman
Director and CEO of China Mobile Hong Kong
I am deeply honored to be the founding chairman of The Greater Bay Area 5G Industry Alliance.
The new era of 5G is quickly approaching, and enterprises from all industries are eager to embrace a world connected by the Internet of Everything. China Mobile Hong Kong has been committed to promoting the development of 5G technology. In 2018, we established the China Mobile 5G Innovation Center Hong Kong Open Lab to explore the development of 5G across various industries. The establishment of the GBA 5G Industry Alliance encourages cooperation among sector leaders to conduct in-depth research on the possibilities of 5G technology across different areas and regions. This collaboration, with research data and results shared through forums and seminars, will promote the development of 5G networks and the Internet of Things, and accelerate Hong Kong towards becoming a smart city. Society will reap great rewards from this evolution.
In the future, we will regularly consult the industry, discuss the direction of 5G development in Hong Kong, and as it evolves into a smart city, act in concert with government policy and promote related infrastructure. We are beginning a new chapter of 5G development in Hong Kong.
