The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) Deputy Director Cheng Wai Tong announced during Monday’s press conference that the office has launched a programme for local residents to join tour groups organised by local travel agencies to travel around the city, with the aim of helping the local tourism industry which has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The programme aims to maintain the livelihoods of local travel agencies, tour guides, coach drivers and other related staff in the travel industry while also benefiting local small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the community, Cheng said, adding that Macao residents will be able to understand their city better by participating in the programme.

According to Cheng, interested residents can register from tomorrow with local travel agencies which have joined the programme, which will start next Monday.

Each Macao resident will receive a subsidy of MOP 280 from the government’s Macau Foundation (FM) each time they join a tour group, Cheng said, adding that they can receive a subsidy of up to MOP 560 for the programme, meaning that they can join the programme twice thanks to the government’s subsidy.
