The year 2020 is a new historical starting point for the Macao SAR. The problem of how to meet the new opportunities and respond to the new challenges in the new era, and how to understand and implement the “one country, two systems” policy in a more comprehensive and accurate manner requires not only a conscientious summary of Macao’s past experience in the practice of “one country, two systems” policy, but also a deliberate analysis of the future prospects of “one country, two systems” in Macao. It is necessary to examine and analyze how Macao continues to advance the development of “one country, two systems” from the perspective of public administration, as well as how Macao continues to deepen the connotation of “one country, two systems” from the perspective of law.
For this purpose, the One Country Two Systems Research Centre of the Macao Polytechnic Institute (MPI) is going to hold a seminar on “Public Policy in the Practice of ‘One Country, Two Systems’” on Tuesday, 21 July 2020. Invited experts and scholars from different disciplines include Professor Chen Xinxin, the Institute of Law of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences; Professor Shi Jiayou, Renmin University of China Law School; Professor Qin Aolei, the School of Law of China University of Political Science and Law; Professor Zhu Yingping, the Law School of East China University of Political Science and Law; Professor Zheng Ge, the Koguan School of Law of Shanghai Jiao Tong University; Professor Yang Jiejun, the School of Law, Humanities and Sociology of Wuhan University of Technology; Associate Professor Sun Ying, the School of Law of Sun Yat-Sen University; Professor Tu Guangjian and Kong Wa, the Faculty of Law of the University of Macau; Professor Li Xiaoping and Associate Professor Zhu Shihai, the Faculty of Law ofMacau University of Science and Technology; Professor Ip Kuai Peng, City University of Macau; Assistant Professor Li Hongjiang, the School of Law of City University of Macau; Professor Xu Chang, Associate Professor Li Yanping and Ji Chaoyuan of the “One Country, Two Systems” Research Centre of MPI. Aiming to facilitate the growth of the Macao SAR in the new era, the Seminar covers discussions on the theoretical and practical new issues during the implementation of “one country, two systems” policy such as the central-local relationship, anti-pandemic cooperation mechanism, public health, the coordination of economic and social development and national security. It is hoped that the Seminar will play a significant role in safeguarding the interests of national sovereignty, security and development, motivating the long-term prosperity and stability of the Macao society, and ensuring that the practice of “one country, two systems” keeps progressing in a positive direction.
The seminar will be held on Tuesday, 21 July from 9:30 to 12:30 on ZOOM. Macao residents, teachers, college students and other interested persons are all welcome to participate.
