The Government will continue to support businesses from Macao that seek to expand cooperation with neighbouring areas in mainland China, said the Chief Executive, Mr Chui Sai On. This would strengthen Macao’s efforts in promoting diversification of the city’s economy, he added. Mr Chui made the remarks in a meeting with Executive Director of Macau Legend Development Ltd, Ms Lam Fong Ngo, in Tonglu County, Zhejiang Province. The Chief Executive visited Tonglu County on 24 October to attend the opening ceremony of a hotel operated by Macau Legend, a Macao-based firm. The Chief-of-Office of the Chief Executive’s Office, Ms O Lam, also joined the visit. In the meeting, Mr Chui was briefed on Macau Legend’s plans to make use of its new hotel development to enhance Macao-Zhejiang relations and improve cooperation in the tourism sector. The Chief Executive said strengthening regional cooperation could help Macao contribute further to the country’s development. Ms Lam said she hoped Macao and Zhejiang would strengthen cooperation, especially in tourism, by taking advantage of Tonglu’s rich tourism resources.
