The leading projects in the seven major industries of Hengqin New Area:

- Shizimen CBD

This project is estimated to require investment of 100 billion yuan (roughly US$ 16.1 billion). It covers an area of 5.77 square kilometers, 3.49 square kilometers of which are in the south of Hengqin. The project plans to create an 11-million-square-meter platform for close cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao. A series of supporting facilities are also being built in the CBD, including the Zhuhai International Conference Center, the International Expo Center, international grade-A office buildings and international five-star hotels. Industries developed in the area will include finance, insurance, business services and trade. Offices of several companies from Hong Kong and Macao are expected to be established in the project area.

- Hengqin Finance Industry Service Base

This project covers 130,000 square meters, including a covered space of about 50,000 square meters. It is composed of 18 office buildings, one finance street service center and one restaurant center. The service base provides enterprises with independent, high-quality, garden-like offices and operation outlets complemented by excellent supporting service facilities. Two free shuttle routes have been opened between the Finance Street and the urban area of Zhuhai. To date, more than 180 financial institutions have opened offices in the area.

- Chimelong International Ocean Resort

The resort is a world-class comprehensive resort center containing luxury hotels, exhibition space, shopping, sports facilities and entertainment. It contains the world's longest roller coaster, the highest ferris wheel and the largest ocean park and aims to become the "Orlando of China." The first phase was opened to the public at the end of 2013. In November 2013, the first China International Circus Festival was held there.

- Xiangzhou Culture Street

The construction of this street involves about 1 billion yuan (roughly US$ 161.5 million) in investment from Zhuhai Jingfu Tourism Development Co., Ltd. It plans to develop the area into a large cultural tourism zone that centers around traditional folk craft and folk customs and integrates leisure, tourism, shopping, dining and exhibition facilities.

- Guangdong-Macao Cooperative TCM Science & Technology Industry Park

This park is a flagship project for cooperative development between Guangdong and Macao. The international traditional Chinese medicine industry base to be established here is jointly planned, invested and run by Guangdong and Macao. The project covers 500,000 square meters, and 1.2 billion yuan (roughly US$ 193.7 million ) is being invested in its first phase. High-quality TCM industry, TCM health services industry, TCM information industry and TCM cultural industry are the main features of the park, which is being developed as an international science and technology and TCM health care industry cluster demonstration zone.

- The New Campus of the University of Macau on Hengqin Island

This university is a demonstration project exploring new modes of Guangdong-Macao cooperation under the "One Country, Two Systems" policy. Macao is leasing the land where the new campus is located from Hengqin. The new campus was governed by the laws of the Chinese mainland during its construction, but it is now under the governance of the Macao Special Administrative Region.

The campus is one of the key collaborative projects between Guangdong and Macao, occupying an area of 1.0899 square kilometers and a floor space of 820,000 square meters. Its cornerstone-laying ceremony was held on Dec. 20, 2009. The new campus consists of gymnasiums, libraries, 10 residential colleges and teacher and student dormitory buildings. It is linked to Macao by a 1.5-km tunnel. Upon completion, the new campus will be able to accommodate 10,000 students, with a long-term goal of accommodating 15,000.

It received its first students in September 2013.

- Combined Gas Energy Supply Project of Hengqin Island

This project encompasses a total area of 360,000 square meters. The first phase saw the construction of two 390,000kW 9F gas-steam combined cycle units with heating-power-cooling production capacity of 400 tons per hour, requiring 3 billion yuan (roughly US$ 483.9million) in investments. There are plans to build eight 390,000kW 9F gas-steam combined cycle units in the area in the future. The project has already become a reliable and economical power supplier to the China Southern Power Grid for Macao. It is part of a new energy base that covers the whole island and features a combined supply of electricity, steam heat and water. It went into production and was completed in 2013.
