The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) is organising a week-long promotional event at the Praça do Comércio in central Lisbon beginning this coming Saturday. “Experience Macao Unlimited” is timed to coincide with the visit to the Portuguese capital by Chief Executive Ho Iat Seng, who will be there from 18 to 22 April for talks with President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, Prime Minister António Costa and Foreign Minister João Gomes Cravinho.
According to a government handout, the MGTO event will feature video displays, light shows, pavilions and booths to “showcase Macao’s offer of new travel experiences to spark European interest in visiting”.
Displays will focus on Macao’s fusion of Portuguese and Chinese cultures, gastronomy, heritage and other topics.
Representatives of Macao’s tourism sector will gather in Lisbon at the same time to promote the territory’s unique tourism offerings.
In addition, the MGTO is partnering with the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute to hold a seminar in Lisbon on economy, trade and tourism.
