Hong Kong, Chinese President Xi Jinping officially

launched the 55 km Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge at a ceremony in

Zhuhai City on the mainland.

It is the longest sea bridge in the world after the Hyawan-Qingdao

Bridge (41.85 km). The world’s longest berth bridge is the Danyang-

Kunshan Grand Bridge (164.8), all in China.

The bridge will facilitate the development of the principle of “one

country, two systems” and will help the integration process of Hong

Kong and Macao with the mainland. It will also make it easier for

people from all three places to share more in economy and trade said

Chinese Vice Prime Minister Han Zheng.
