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.
