Participants Achieve Co-operation

According to General Manager of Nanjing Xinbiao Agricultural By-product Limited Ma Rongpin, Macao’s products appeal to the mainland’s market, so he reached preliminary co-operation intension, via the event, with three to four Made-in-Macao product suppliers and Macao agencies of Portuguese-speaking countries’ products. He said that he would visit these companies and their factories in Macao soon. Ma pointed out that many citizens in Nanjing had developed a habitual consumption of coffee and wine, especially the younger generation, hence the potential in this area.

Person in-charge of Francine Chicard (Macau) Fragrance & Flavour Co. Ltd. Chan Kuok Sang reported considered the event as rewarding as participants’ businesses were very relatable, and that the event was an effective platform for Macao enterprises to expand businesses. He reported that he had reached preliminary co-operation intension with two mainland companies. According to Chan, his products sourced from Portuguese-speaking countries, whose products are not commonly seen in Mainland China, so they stand out from similar products in Mainland China. Thanks to the Macao’s discreet implementation of anti-pandemic measures and various activities the SAR Government had held, Mainland China’s enterprises were able to have better understanding of Macao’s business environment and its advantages as Macao’s relations with mainland provinces and cities was getting closer and closer.

The “Macao Week in Jiangsu” was held by the Secretariat for Economy and Finance of the Macao SAR Government. The huge roadshow took place in Nanjing from 14 to 17 May, featuring a diversified programme. IPIM organised 20 Macao commercial delegates to join the “Macao Week in Jiangsu” and arranged for 23 Made-in-Macao and Macao brand companies, as well as Macao agencies of Portuguese-speaking countries’ products to hold sales campaign at the event. 15 Macao agencies of Portuguese-speaking countries’ products and Macao companies exhibited their products at the event, including bakery products, coffee, wine, natural essential oil and apparel, raising their brand awareness and exploring business opportunities.
