Inês Chan Lou, who heads the Licensing and Inspection Department of the Macau Government Tourism Office (MGTO), reaffirmed on Sunday that the local government does not plan to extend after Tuesday its special measure to provide Macau residents who have arrived at Hong Kong’s airport from foreign countries with transport to Macau – which will run until Tuesday in collaboration with the Hong Kong government.
Chan pointed out that the Hong Kong government already extended the measure once, adding that both governments have been putting a lot of human resources and material efforts into carrying out the arrangement.
“Hong Kong has already offered a lot of assistance and exemptions for the special transport measure for Macau,” Chan said, adding that Macau should “respect” Hong Kong’s laws and regulations.
She also said it was impossible for the Macau government to “repeatedly” ask its Hong Kong counterpart to continue offering exemptions for Macau.
