This year's International Students Festival will continue the focus on creating a gathering platform for returnees, highlighting efforts in establishing the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area's innovation hub and a strategy base in Zhuhai to support the Chinese government's One Belt, One Road initiative.
