[Explanation] On November 22, the 2021 Guangzhou Honorary Citizenship Conference was held in Guangzhou. He Jinglin, chairman of the General Association of Guangzhou Association of Macau and 13 people, became a new batch of honorary citizens of Guangzhou.

  In an exclusive interview with a reporter from China News Agency recently, He Jinglin said that he will continue to inherit his family honour, build a service platform in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and encourage more Macau youths to take a ride in the development of the Bay Area.

  [Explanation] It is understood that Ho Jinglin is the fourth generation heir of the Ho family in Macau, the grandson of the famous Macau social activist Ho Xian, and the nephew of Ho Houhua, the vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

He Jinglin recalled that since his grandfather He Xian, patriotism and love for Australia has always been a family tradition, and he will spare no effort to pass it on.

  We used to not make as much money as we do now, but we first build hotels and bridges first. We just hope that the road will be connected and many of our conditions will be better, so that Hong Kong and Macau citizens, as well as many people from Panyu, will go out of Panyu. Some business people can return to Panyu to build their hometown.

This is what we have been doing since Grandpa's generation.

  [Explanation] In recent years, He Jinglin, who has not forgotten the teachings of his grandfather and inherited the family love of the country, has been traveling between Sui and Macao.

He mobilized many associations in Macau and united the key members of many associations to create the "Macao Youth Innovation and Entrepreneurship Plan" and set up a full-service platform for Hong Kong and Macau youth innovation and entrepreneurship.

  I gathered several associations in Macau, including the Panyu Association of Macau, the Federation of Industry and Commerce in Macau, and some key members of the Macau Young Entrepreneurs Association. We organized a team of 34 entrepreneurs.

We start a business together and walk back to our Greater Bay Area to develop together.

These 34 people include myself, many of whom have not tried to start a new business in Guangzhou.

We will be an industry accelerator and hope that we will build a platform by ourselves.

Let's try first. After the trial, if we succeed, we will return to Macau in the future to promote it and talk to Macau people more convincingly.

  [Explanation] He Jinglin said with emotion that the release of the "Overall Plan for the Construction of the Hengqin Guangdong-Macao Deep Cooperation Zone" is the biggest gift given by the central government in the 22 years since Macao's return.

As a representative of the National People's Congress, He Jinglin made a number of suggestions for this during the National People's Congress this year.

He Jinglin said that the plan brings new opportunities to Macau and can also promote the moderately diversified development of Macau's economy.

  The central government saw our bottleneck in time.

In fact, our Macau is only 32 square kilometers of land with a population of 680,000.

This "Hengqin Plan" is to make Hengqin a new concept of (Guangdong and Macao) consultation, co-construction, co-management and sharing.

All of a sudden, 106 square kilometers of land was added to the in-depth cooperation zone between Macau and Guangdong Province.

We used to be called Qin-Ao Cooperation, but now we don’t need to cooperate. We are now one.

I hope that in it we can put our economy apart from comprehensive vacation tourism, how can we start from several new (development).

Our current goal is to modernize our traditional Chinese medicine industry and our high-tech industry. How can we use this new land? We can pave the way for Macau in the next 20 or 30 years, and Macau will continue to grow in the future. How to do the steps.

  [Commentary] In addition, He Jinglin is highly optimistic about the cooperation between Macau and Guangzhou. He said that Guangzhou's mature economic development can play a role in leading the in-depth cooperation between Guangdong and Macau. He hopes that more Macau youths can come to Guangzhou and integrate into the Bay Area. The trend of development.

  Sui-Ao linkage can inject momentum into the development of Qin'ao and Hengqin.

This will be the beginning of this year and I will work harder in the next year or two. How can I use Guangzhou's such a mature and good economy to help Macau and help us cooperate with Qin-Ao.
