San Francisco, March 29 (People's Daily Online) -- The Global Bay Areas Cooperation and Development Forum (GBAF), an international gathering which aims to promote cooperation among bay areas worldwide, has been hailed by US politicians as a “resourceful and dynamic platform for cooperation.”

Jointly launched by People’s Daily Online and People’s Daily West USA, the GBAF kicked off on March 29, 2019.

Attracting prominent leaders and experts from renowned metropolitan and bay areas worldwide under the theme of “Connect, Cooperate and Develop,” the forum is an international gathering to deepen cooperation between bay areas around the world, including China’s newly established Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, New York Bay Area, San Francisco Bay Area and Tokyo Bay Area.

“I commend you for your commitment to unite the bay areas of the world for partnership and economic development,” noted Eleni Kounalakis, lieutenant governor of California in her letter to People’s Daily Online, the organizer of GBAF.

According to Kounalakis, San Francisco is the perfect place to hold such a forum, as the city is home to high-tech industries, new ideas and cooperation between diverse people and companies.

Echoing Kounalakis, Libby Schaaf, mayor of Oakland, sent her congratulations to the forum, noting that global bay areas will benefit if cities connect, cooperate and develop.

“This gathering is intended to construct a resourceful and dynamic platform for cooperation and strengthen the leadership position of these bay areas in the global economy,” she added.
