When residents of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area travel across borders and cities and use various services, they can achieve a "one-stop" solution in the "Bay Affairs" mini program. In the first phase, more than 100 services will be launched, providing convenience for residents in the Greater Bay Area to eat, live, travel and travel.

From the 9th, you can find it by searching for "Bay Affairs" on Alipay, WeChat, AlipayHK (Hong Kong version of Alipay), MPay (Macau wallet), and WeChat (international version of WeChat).

Since the beginning of this year, Guangdong Province has leveraged the strength of leading digital platform enterprises such as Ant Group and Tencent to create a comprehensive service platform of "Bay Affairs" through the integration of high-quality service resources, providing non-inductive and convenient services around the scenarios and Xi habits of residents in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, such as travel, customs clearance, communication, payment, job hunting, pension, medical care, education, insurance, food, accommodation and travel, etc., to help realize "one yard for traveling in the Bay Area" with digitalization and jointly build a high-quality living circle in the Bay Area.

Taking the transportation service scenario as an example, giving full play to Alipay's advantages in scanning QR code travel and cross-border transportation, the "Bay Affairs" mini program brings together two major scenarios: urban transportation and cross-border travel. The "Intra-city Transportation QR Code Travel" option covers urban buses and subways in the Greater Bay Area, and residents of mainland cities in the Greater Bay Area can scan the QR code when they go to Hong Kong and Macao to take public transportation such as Kowloon Bus Bus, Metro Bus, Star Ferry, and trams. Cross-border transportation covers a variety of cross-border modes such as Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong high-speed rail, cross-border buses, ferries, etc., and the mobile phone can be clicked to set off immediately, eliminating the need for currency exchange procedures.

Tourists from mainland cities in the Greater Bay Area can also quickly make an appointment for documents through "Bay Affairs OneStop", inquire about nearby cross-border business service halls, apply for Hong Kong and Macao traffic packages, and purchase car, train, and ferry tickets to Hong Kong and Macao based on Tencent's travel service product capabilities, and open up cross-city transportation, public transportation, taxis, car rentals and other travel services. In the upcoming "Hong Kong and Macao Edition", Hong Kong and Macao residents can also view the "Cross-border Guide" and "Hong Kong Vehicles Going North", and quickly find hospitals in mainland cities in the Greater Bay Area that can support Hong Kong and Macao residents to register for medical treatment based on Tencent's map information service capabilities.

Wang Lijuan, vice president of Ant Group, said that in the future, Ant will make better use of its technology and platform capabilities to serve the society and create value, hoping to continue to help the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area build a bay area with the highest level of digitalization in the world through technology.
