CE meets with new Commissioner of Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Chief Executive, Mr Chui Sai On, meets with the new Commissioner of the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China in the Macao SAR, Mr Ye Dabo.

The Chief Executive, Mr Chui Sai On, said the constant support of the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China in Macao has been an important factor in facilitating the city’s external affairs and long-term development. Mr Chui made the comments on 26 October during a meeting with the new Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Macao, Mr Ye Dabo, at the Government Headquarters. The Chief Executive said the good communication mechanism established between the Government and the Office of the Commissioner has laid a solid foundation for cooperation since the establishment of the Macao Special Administrative Region 15 years ago. Mr Chui said the Government has closely followed the principles of the Basic Law when handling Macao’s external affairs, greatly supported by the Office of the Commissioner. Over the years, the Office of the Commissioner has assisted Macao in establishing ties with international associations, in organising international conferences and forums, and in reviewing the enforcement of international treaties in the Macao SAR, he added. In the meeting, the Commissioner was briefed on the economic situation of Macao. Mr Chui said the Government would make use of the ongoing adjustment period of the city’s economy to foster industry diversification and to strengthen regional cooperation, as ways to improve people’s quality of life. Mr Ye, who took over the position on 23 October, said he is proud of serving as Commissioner and supporting Macao’s development and its people. The Commissioner briefed Mr Chui on his action plan for the future. It includes: to build up Macao’s external relations; to support visits of the Chief Executive and other principal officials abroad; to encourage visits of foreign leaders to Macao; to assist Macao in taking part in international organisations and host international conferences; and to facilitate the signing of international treaties that would help enhance Macao’s profile. Mr Ye said the Office of the Commissioner would strengthen its contributions to the transformation of Macao to a world centre of tourism and leisure, and a commercial and trade cooperation service platform between China and the Portuguese-speaking Countries, (known as the “Centre and Platform” strategy). The Office of the Commissioner would also help Macao take part in the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road national initiative, he added. Officials attending the meeting included the wife of Mr Ye and advisor to the Office of the Commissioner, Ms Qiu Weiwei; the Deputy Commissioners of the Office of the Commissioner, Mr Pan Yundong and Mr Cai Siping; the Secretary for Administration and Justice, Ms Chan Hoi Fan; the Chief-of-Office of the Chief Executive’s Office, Ms O Lam; and the Director of the Protocol, Public Relations and External Affairs Office, Mr Fung Sio Weng.
