The Macanese community has been called on to use its international networks to promote Macao.
Speaking at a gathering on Tuesday to Macanese leaders, Chief Executive Ho Iat Seng asked Macanese to help cement the SAR’s position as a meeting point for China and lusophone countries and remind the world of the diversity of Macao’s culture.
Ho also thanked the local Macanese community, and Portuguese living in Macao, for their support and cooperation during the difficult years of the pandemic but added that the worst days were over.
